To show my thanks to our military personnel who serve in Afghanistan & Iraq and their families, I'm carving Santa ornaments to send to those who are interested. I know I can't give every service person one, but I can take the time to carve a fair amount this year. I need to start early because of the time it takes to carve them. Contact me if you have a request. The Santa is four inches long and cut from a two inch block and cut at an angle. They are painted with acrylics with a coat of Deft. To keep up my interest there will be small difference in carving and painting techniques. There is a small space on the back where I can burn in a name or a small message of your choosing. God bless our military.
