The other day I said I was going to whittle a Gnome playin a banjo. This is my first attempt. The Gnome himself is one inch tall, his hat another inch. He's a little one. The second one will have more detail. Consider this one a prototype.
Retired male. Next birthday will be 78. Spend most of my time carving and quilting. Retired early (51) from a major university; so I am gettin this retirement thing down real good. I talked myself into wood carving. My daughter talked me into making quilts.
