This is another Phil Bishop rough out (available from Dwayne Gosnell Woodcarving) that I was asked to carve. I changed up a few things on it, mainly the plaid shirt. The original carving had a red shirt and it may have showed off the fish better? But I haven’t painted a plaid shirt in a while and I wanted to see if I still remembered how to do it. Mark Akers did an after-hours class at the March 2013 Renegade and passed on a few tips on painting plaid. It takes a little more time than just painting it one color, but it’s not real difficult. Thanks for looking!

That is excellent work! I personally would pass the painting of a plaid shirt to my tole-painting wife, though.

Yeah, most of my carving is in my attic office. But I still use my garage workshop with the bigger tools and wood storage. If I can clean up all the clutter sitting around on everything! I had to clean some rust off my bandsaw and wax the table a bit last week!
