Found this chip carved plate at Goodwill today.

I hate to see great crafted items just donated to Goodwill and not past down.
So now I’m trying to figure out who the carver is. Here is the carver’s signature.

Does anyone out there recognize it?

-- While teaching a class, a gentlemen once asked me: "When chip carving an intricate design, what do you do when you are almost finished and the wood breaks off?" I replied "Cover the kids ears."

I hope you find him. He deserves recognition for his talent. That’s a beautiful piece.
