Not long ago a neighbor ask me to dress up his grandmothers cane. He told me She is very active in her church community and loves angles. This is what I came up with.

More good work from you. I am struggling to work on such a small scale.

And, reviewing your post, I'm reminded of something that happened to me in college. I was taking a general review course of great literature, and there were readings from the Bible. I had to write a paper, and when I went in for review with the prof, he asked right off if I thought God was a geometer. I was bewildered, until he showed me my paper, where thru out I referred to the "angles" of the Lord.

Beautiful work CV3! Do you know what type of oak? I have tried to carve a little red oak and it seemed to tear out when I used a gouge on it.

cobalt,

With my luck it would belong to a pistol packing old sheriff that would shoot me in the back side. So I will just buy them or make them. (-:
