Carving and Woodworking

Or what I like to call just whittlen around.

I truley enjoy watching, riding and studying antique carousels. The craftsmanship of the early carousel carvers is really something to behold. Next time your near an antique carousel take the time to really look at them. Below there are several links to my favorite carousel sites.

I carve (or whittle depending upon your definition) to relax and I mostly give my carvings away to friends and family but I did manage to keep a few for myself and I have several pictures of them here . They are not all that good (IMHO) but like I said before I do this to relax.

I now have another reason to whittle, my old son has taken an interest in carving. I just got him his own knife and we are working together making a mess.
