Thanks to you both. Don't know about making a living though. As long as it took to carve those I'd starve!
As much woodworking I've done over the years, I'd never picked up a carving knife. Last winter we were in Texas and I decided to give carving a try. I had some excellent carvers for teachers. The wood burning was mostly self-taught from some good books from Fox Chapel Publishing. The nice thing about carving, it's quiet, not a need for many tools and you can bring it just about anywhere.
