  1. Hi Janel One more thought on the flying eye problem. Take a large size (1 gal ) ziplock or food storage clear plastic bag. Insert a small board to cut on, the stick with the eye and a knife.

  7. My name is Dick Kahle and this is my first posting. I started carving wood, under my Grandfather's watchfull eye when I was 10-12 years old. Since then my fascinaion with carving wood has grown and continued for over fifty years and continues unabated today. In recent years my favorite subjects have been, Fishing Lures, Fish Spearing Decoys, with some Decorative carving of Fish, Birds, and Fantasy / Mythological Animals.
