Here's the latest -

Carvings, that is. I had to show you Bob's latest work. I need to work on my photography though - It's hard to get a decent close up shot with good lighting. Anyway - these are 2 carvings Bob's sister commissioned him to do. She works for 2 lawyers and never knows what to get them for Christmas. One is a golfer, the other one enjoys hiking. She e-mailed Bob a few pictures to work from so these resemble the guys who are going to get them.
Here is the golfer.
He is looking to see where his golf ball went and it is still on the ground!



Here is the hiker.


I am impressed by the details on these. There are folds in the clothing and the hiker even has a grid on the bottom of his hiking boots. I think every carving he does is a little better than the one before.

He did such a great job! I'm so glad he's going to start selling them at the hardware store. We shouldn't be the only ones who get to enjoy his amazing talent!
I bet Diane just loved them.

So cool! I saw the golfing one in person, but I wish I could have seen the hiker. They look so cool! I agree - I think every one he does gets a little better!

I am always amazed when people do crazy awesome things like that! Maybe daylight outside would be the best light. Not direct light though. Those are really cool!

Karen said...

In response to your comment on my blog (because if anyone just read this here they would think, 'what the heck is she talking about pants for??? haha) ... YES, I have the HARDEST time shopping for tall pants. I hate it ... I loath shopping in stores. I have two places I know I can find something that is long enough, so I pretty much stick to them. Seriously, where is the coupon for the tall pants??? I'm searching now! hahahaha

Hope you're having a great day! :)
