At the end of July, my hands were combed and I wanted something new. We went to the ford on the island and made a blank by hand with our grandson. There is no strength to wait until it dries up … LOL …

Dick, Yes, the river knocked down a tree …. Someone above heard my hands itching and directed me to search for the trunks.

Your hands hold more talent than my whole body. I would mostly choose the one on the left but they are both beautiful. Excellent work Sasha.
Looks like you were getting ready for a swim too.

Excellent, what did you use to carve it with? I have been looking for carving tools but not sure what to pull the trigger on.

Sasha, those are really beautiful and really good to work with your Grandson.

There is the proof that you really are a MASTER.

Thank you for sharing with us.

Bob.

Love the carvings. Is this from a novel or movie?

And what did you mean that your hands were combed?

It is good that your grandson helped you with the blanks.

It was a concert …. When they were sawing, I thought that I would carry it on my shoulders … LOL ….. But probably already old ….. One log weighs about 50-60 kg. They tied them with a rope and dragged them together over the stones, about 45-50 meters. On the water it was easy. It’s good that grandson Arsentiy doesn’t know how to swear …
