I had planned on working until I was 75 years old. I enjoyed what I was doing, so why quit? But a funny thing happened to get to my goal. 2009 came along and projects for engineering firms dried up. Being 70 years old, you know what happens to thin out the herd... I sat around watching TV like an old wet setting hen, knowing things had to change. I looked around to find something to do. I remembered whittling as a kid and so I found some wood and a knife and the rest is history. Carving has given me something to keep the hand and mind busy.
I enjoy character, relief, and most any type of carving except chip carving.
