The piece is stained Early American and finished with lacquer. Down at the bottom there is a bit of bark remaining because all old soldiers still have a little bark left on them.

Please describe your main woodworking interests.
Woodcarving is my main interest. I have done all forms of carving but I do specialize in chip carving. I have developed my own style of a more natural version of free-form chip carving that offers a very realistic portrayal of the wildflowers I carve.

I've done some carving on furniture but mostly it's to fix a broken piece or make applique too dress up something.

 

I've done cabinet doors for a kitchen with victorian scroll inlay and I'm working on a new technique using a small router and a contrasting background with neon.

Thanks for being here Darrell. no sir, I was a 31Lima Cable Dog (Lineman) climbed poles and ran comm. I started Surveying in my civilian life. Were you artillery or construction? My old party chief who retired about 4 years ago, was an arty surveyor in Nam. Man was he good, he knew his math like nobody's business. He was old school. Put the programs away, he did most of it on his calculator, latitude and departures, trig, geo, vertical curves, deflection layouts, one lil calculator and he knocked it out.

Thanks for asking, when you were in the service?
