    Woodworker looking for friends

    Hello first post here,
    Here are some of my wifeís Great Uncle Fritzís carving.
    I have many or Fritzís woodworking tools that I hold "in remembrance of" and have used some of his tools to carve my own inspired by Fritz's roster.

    Ken,
    Thank for the warm welcome.

    Here is Fritz’s carving of that rooster as well a photo of his brother Rudolph’s favorite dog Spritz resting place. All three of them are rest above the rich land they tended and all of their Ancestors stretching back to the time they came to this land at Lost Creek from far across the ocean.
    This photo of origin rooster that Fritz carved is at Little Lost Creeks low water crossing down stream for his home where his breath meet his finished forms for the first time.


    I will take my lovely wife there when things are hardest ,so she might soak her feet and splash in its cool spring waters so rich in her history.

    Hi John
    The rooster varies in many details from a real bird but is without a doubt a rooster. Fritz had the artistic ability to speak clearly in unclear words. I like it.
