Project Information

I carved this piece about 15 years ago. It is carved from one piece of walnut wood. He measures 6 1/2" high x 8" long. About a year ago the ineffable happened. I was showing it to my niece one day and it went from about $1000.00 dollar value to about a $50.00 dollar value item within a split second ,as she dropped it and it hit my glass topped coffee table. My heart skipped about 3 beats as it made a terrible glass crashing sound, the table is ok, but the left horn got broken. She cried and I said it was ok. I glued it, but the joint showed, so I painted them, but I am not happy with it the way it is. I think I will try to match the paint a little closer to the walnut color…(if that's possible)? I would never sell it for $50.00 anyways.
THANKS FOR VIEWING MY GALLERY!!!

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the story. I am sure that your niece was upset by the accident but material things, such as the moose carving, can be repaired or replaced. Personal relationships are really the only enduring things that we ultimately are left with in this life.

By the way I agree with Debbie's comment about the moose. He just didn't want to leave home so this may have been a planned accident on his part. :)

Thanks for the story and the post.
