Here's a salvaged carving - I was trying to emulate the style of carving the Haida native Americans (from the Pacific NW) do; it started out as an oar, but I split the shaft and wound up with this hanging piece. I like it, hope you do, too. Cypress, painted. A salmon, and seabird, both with stylized Orcas near the top. Mike

Very nice. I really like the PNW styles. I've collected the tools (North Bay Forge), and the books; now I just need to do some carving.
