Here are some carvings I finished earlier this summer but could not show you then because they were both gifts.
This first one was of a old Russian lady I seen in a newspaper article, I called it "Babushka", Russian for grandmother. It was a gift to my wife's sister's family, who has two adopted girls from Russia.
The other was for my wife's other sister's family, her husband has firefighter ties.
They were fun to do, and fun to give away. I've got some great in-laws and it's fun surprising them.
