oh.my.gosh.  Matchsticks too.     Now I'm really impressed. !!    And your not permenently cross eyed after doing these?   :)

I'm having a blast looking through your galleries.  :)

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

Wow. Now that is impressive. All your stuff is great but that looks like a lot of effort and skill.

Thank you all.  To carve these I have to wear cheaters to see what I am doing.

I'm impressed.  I can't believe the detail in that thin matchstick!

The Santa in the lower left corner is actually huge!  It was a piece of 1/4" x 1/4" square poplar.
