Bob's little fans

Bob spent an extra day with us at the camp ground, before going back to work. He decided to do a little carving while he was sitting around.

Here he is, working a little man.
He wears a Kevlar glove, while he is carving to protect his fingers. You can see the man taking shape, but without a face.
This little guy is from the Revolutionary times. Take note of the 3 corner hat and the ponytail.

You can see the front of him here. He is almost done and ready to be painted.

The girls were quite interested in this. They would be out on a bike ride, then stop by to see how the carving was going. I know Bob enjoyed having them around and he had some fun conversations with them too!

Bob has a great gift of carving! That is so cool of what he turns a piece of wood into.
I like to see the audience that he has too.

What an awesome talent. Hey, you ought to have him carve something and have a give-a-way on your blog. Ohh- maybe a Christmas ornament. That would be so cool
