    This carving is one I did last Christmas and is carved on a wooden egg.

    After seeing the pic I noticed I need to re-antique it, the antiqueing didn't get down into all the cuts.

    That' great Greenbean. An heirloom Xmas decoration.

    When I was a kid we had a paper Santa that my uncle had made in school. It went on our tree every year. It must have been in used for at least 30 years.

    But your egg would last for generations. Carve your name and the year on the bottom.

    Thank you all! You really brightened my day. I need it we have had fog and a high around 25 for 4 days now and it's depressing! The sun is shining up in the mountains and I might just take my dog and drive up there so we can enjoy it! Looks like I've got a case of SAD!

    I have a couple of recent carvings that I will bring in and see if my girlfriend can take some pics of them. I don't have a digital camera (or a computer for that matter!).

    Thanks again. And, yes, I am my worst critic!! This egg is about the size of a chicken egg so I guess I didn't notice the "flaws" until I saw it blown up!
