Tasmanian Devil

 We've been had!  This was sold to us as a Dalmatian pup.  Its turned out she a Tasmanian Devil.
These are dockyard chisels,, tools.  They are micro chielsand I think good ones.  BUT they came slack in the hndle.  The right most one is unaltered.  The reason for the slackness became obvious when I removed the old handles, there was no sign of glue.  The handles I added are scraps of purple heart left over from a spoon.  The shapes are random.

wood carving, dogs and fitevircomes: Bentley


Here's my holiday dog, Jack's  wee mongrel.  He the dog adopted me and we'd a great time.
In fact the entire holiday was great inspite of Air France.   The Auld Alliance was put in jepardy more than once when the volcanic ash meant landing at  President DeGaulle airport necessary.   However home safe and sound now.    I've a couple of carving to work on a caricature, almost finished, thanks to my Whittling Jack and another stick Jack wants.
