You guys are too much!! I have just had the opportunity to see some of the magical projects going on here and am amazed!!! I must continue to thank Andy for inspiring so many to try his boxes and with such fabulous results!

I have been so busy these days and am happy to say that I am selling my pieces as they are completed and Laura and I are getting closer to getting our own home so we can stop living like gypsies! LOL! Throughout the winter, I’ve managed to carve in the tiny area I have but still dream of my own workshop where I’m not tripping over things or having to constantly unplug and plug my tools for lack of outlets.

We survived this new and cold winter and can finally see an end in sight.

Keep up the good work you guys, this site is still amazing and I’m glad I had the chance to see how it’s grown and how the older members have grown within their abilities as well!

You guys are so great and thank you. I’m sure many of you know the daily grind of trying to make a living with wood. Too often I see loads of pictures of wood works and always send their creators along to lumberjocks for inspiration. And for those of you who don’t know, our very own Grizzman is a year older TODAY!

Good to hear from you again. Your carvings are the most spectacular creations and you deserve every penny of every sale you make. I know you and Laura will get that home and workshop soon and from there will come even more great work.

Damn, I’m always amazed at your work. Really glad to hear you are busy making and getting stuff out. Times when things seem unstable, it’s great to be able to do what you love.

Jordon: Another great looking piece. I’m always amazed. I look at them and say “IS that really, out of wood”. You are worth every penny you are paid and they are a bargin.

Good luck on finding a place to settle down and call your own.
