Are these hand carved, Rod?

Beautiful pieces.

Very nice work! I'm trying my hand at carving too. I have a LOT to learn.

Working on a rooster now and learning how to control my blade on the tail feathers.

Is there a x-acto blade sharpener out there someplace? The blades dull fast and I wish there was some way of sharpening them instead of buying new ones all the time.

I want to see if these clocks sell before purchasing better tools.

Have a great day!

It's always a good day when you wake up, so don't sweat the small stuff.

Good stuff, Rod. Looks like some ice fishing up there in Alex (3rd photo?).
Your lath art is 'different'. Spent many years in construction using lath for various things, not 'art' though. LOL. Looks cool.
