I decided that I needed a large Noah's Ark for a central display for some carving shows and some sales events. Doing these arks is therapeutic for me. Carving the pairs of animals is also fun and a good way for me to do a whole bunch of smaller carvings. Still have lots of detail to complete.
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.
