It’s a shame that didn’t fall on the floor while you were carving it. I have to admit, the workmanship is great , and I thought “well he’s a talented woodworker, I’ll look at his other projects.” Then I saw the packers, note dame, and michigan! We are clearly not going to be buddies! I only wish they had an enemies list for this website. As for 489tad who comments “nice” form NAPERVILLE, ILLINOIS…..shame….shame…shame….
ILL….(big ten fans will understand).
