“High Noon”
is all painted up! I’ve met Phil Bishop a couple of times but I haven’t ever carved with him. But he was carving at a different table when I attended the Renegade back around 2013 and Vickie showed me a couple of Chris Hammack’s Bar Buddies that he had carved that day. I was amazed by the details and depth of cuts on his carvings! Phil and Vickie both are amazing carvers and it is a lot of fun trying to figure out how they carved things. I had to carve things in a certain order and be careful not to squeeze too much on these skinny arms and legs. Thanks for looking!
