Re: Greetings from Galloway, Scotland

ps thanks regarding the carvings, i do loads of them including a 7ft wide Red Kite (bird) plus motorcycles etc and keeps me out of trouble and i have suffered from severe anxiety over the years (long story) and find my workshop is great place to escape.

Aye I make Intarsia's from different woods (all recycled furniture etc plus any other hardwoods) until I had to finish my career I was a Master Modeller designing all the chocolates etc in the shops and carving them in resins but it ended with industrial injury 20 years ago and my hands were virtually useless so couldn't even hold a pencil etc or cups and its only been in the last 4 years i taught myself how to make the Intarsias and although i cannot do the mega fine detailed work now i am adapting and slowly teaching my right hand to carve but if i overdo it then its back to square one and unable to use them for a week or so which is very frustrating but its better than sitting watching TV. I can combine my other hobbies by taking photos of wildlife and then designing a pattern and then make a wooden one lol. Sorry for the ramble but as you might guess i enjoy making them lol I had only just taught my wife how to make them when she died ( she died from flu virus within 24hrs of getting a cough and was 100% fit before so its been a bad time and so many questions and no answers which i will never get now) I have just added some more photos to my profile which might explain the wood butchering i get up to lol thanks ps We have Kites here as they do in Wales (Gigrin?) my projects are all on display at the Galloway Kite centre which is nice to see them up on a wall instead of cluttering the house lol

Re: Greetings from Galloway, Scotland

A late Hi from me too.

Rudyard Kiplings' home has in the garden a wooden carving of the man himself you might be interested in.



Just shows what can be done with tree stumps
