I started carving 11 years ago and I was a logger before that. I logged with draft horses. I couldn’t tell you how many carvings I’ve done now and I learned something on every one of them.

You just get an idea from the customer and kind of tweak it with your ideas and cutaway what isn’t there, you know what isn’t the critter. One time somebody asked me do you see the critter in the log and I said , but if I got a large standing there and I’m going to carved bear in and somebody walks up with $500 and they want an eagle I can see an eagle and it too. If its just a round log like this one was it’s just an open canvas for us. If it’s got some forks in we utilize that if it’s got some burls or or knots that are in neat spots will use that, but typically I start at the top and work my way to the bottom and I’ll go over the whole carving probably five times before I’m done with it. You know I’ll finish roughing this out today a lot of carver’s do draw on them. I don’t I will make a light mark with my saw sometimes but, it’d be pretty hard for someone to decipher what I’m doing when I’m doing it cause I don’t know myself really you know just I just go and if it don’t look right I just go so more.

It’s money driven but it’s heart driven too you know it’s you got to make the money to pay the bills, but if you didn’t like you wouldn’t do it because its a lot of work. It’s an outlet for me. I struggle with depression so if I’m carving its a release for me and it’s something to focus on that I can get somewhat instant gratification out of and it’s been a real help to me that way. You know. Even if I had a real job I’d still have to carve its just I just I couldn’t leave it alone now so it gets in your blood You don’t have a lot of bad moments when your carving you know I mean as long as things are your stuff is working good, your tools are working good, you’re getting paid on a timely manner and you’re producing product you know it’s all good you know there’s really nothing really nothing negative about it that way.
