TURKEY is coming along fine,,, some changes , and its ok

hi again, i have been working on a turkey for the last week or more, and i might be a bit longer, my original thought was to do a quick one, wasnt sure how it would work out, but now i decided to make some feathers, and do some woodburning, thinking folks might enjoy seeing this being done, so i am changing it from the first idea i had to what i am doing now, its shows you , you never know where your carvings are going to take you , and the changes you will make ,, and its ok, happy carving and happy thanksgiving to all , arleen

about my pocket knives that i use a special rough rider

hi folks , i had three pocket knives that i bought , and i tried alot of the rough riders , i found one that had three blades that worked well for woodcarving, and i love the knife , all three were sold , i am trying to get more ,,, the blades i found worked the best is hard to fine, i did put in an order to the supplier and he told me two to three months before i see this one again,,, so i will keep looking for the same blades, combo ,,, i resharpen them , or you can yourself, i will keep you informed when i have more available, it take a bit to get them sharpen but once you do , its a great pocket knife to take with you if you travel, and the blade holds up great, took me a while to find the right rough rider,

new youtube project ohhhh the turkey lol

hi again, i just started to post my new project the turkey,,, someone said to me on facebook that the pilgrim needed a pet turkey,,, so it confirmed that i need to do this project, so i designed a turkey, and i have video one up and more to come, also i am running out of room to post my patterns on my youtube page, it only allows me to write only a limited amount , so all patterns and basswood cutouts will be listed on my second blog where i sell my woodcarving, and also easy to have a buy it button so folks that have paypal will be able order and pay for it at the same time, i will soon list the rough rider pocket knives in the future, i had a few people asking me about them , the cost is 17.00 shipped anywhere in the usa this knife will have to be sharpen, and if i have to sharpen it for you it will be 34 shipped any where in the usa,,, i only have a limited amount i may get more soon, i only have 2-3 left, ,,, thought i was not going to sell tools but these are not easy to find, and i will try to get more, the steal is stainless, 440 ,, i love the rough rider pocket knife,,, so i continue to add things that will be of interest to folks, alot of new folks starting to carve , its wonderful to see , happy and safe carving , arleen

the pilgrim, a fun project and a keeper

hi folks, i been carving now about 29 years, i love to carve, finding the time is not always easy, i find most of my carvings a pleasure to do, but sometimes one will be just more fun to do. i ask myself this question today, why are some more fun than others, and i came up with a couple of reasons, the number one reason, is seeing an idea come along into a woodcarving. and number two it was quick..... as i said before my favorite holiday is thanksgiving,,,, i was at work when i saw a decoration at the food court of a pilgrims, i thought i would make one and with in a week i designed , cutout , carved it ( on youtube ) and finished the painting. i dont often feel the way that i did today about my woodcarving, it was so refreshing to have something done that i enjoy so much , and to know i created it. i had it in my pocket like a little kid, showing some folks my finished pilgrim, one asked how much ,,,, sorry this one is not for sale this one is a keeper
