A little box made for my dear wife of 50 + years She saw me carving the practice flower and asked if she could have it, of course, I said yes and asked if she would like it made in a box she quickly said yes. It’s made from Basswood and figured walnut Crafting wood & classes

Just a little something you ’threw together", eh? Jim, I love the simplicity of this piece, which is all about the flower! You always inspire me with your beautiful designs!

Very nice Jim. And congratulations on 50 years of joy. That carving looks great. ??

My Woodshop is my happy place?

Man of many talents, great carving.


Cindy,, Of course, it’s simple, almost everything is simple compared to your very cool work, I’m puzzled how I could inspire you considering the kind of great designs and workmanship you and Spider are always involved with. But thank you for your kind words.
Thank you Naringder I really liked your Icecream door.
Thanks, Jack you’ve done a great job on the sign you made.
