    How's about some flames!!!

    Not mine, but my kid brothers work My brother Tim, who has taken up carving after our dad, has created this piece as a house warming gift for a good friend of his, it is his first large flat piece he has created and in my opinion DANG NICE STUFF I helped him create an account here today and hopefully he went to his e-mail and finished the set up for it so he can participate with us as he does have a few questions on staining. I feel he has a great eye for dimension and that is why I wanted to share this with you all. So what ya all think, signed one proud brother

    Very cool Tim! So did you rough it out with a router then detail it or all hand carved?

    Tim

    We have some friends who are Harley nuts. They take a 3,000 mile trip and hardly think about doing it. They would be ecstatic about something like this. I know that there are many others who are the same. Why doesn't he start a side-line business?

    That is a really handsome piece.

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    That's awesome work, Tom (and Tim).

    I just checked, and Tim still hasn't clicked on the link in the confirmation e-mail that was sent to him. Once that's done, we'll be able to finalize his registration. (But we'll be watching him like a hawk. He's one of them Niemi boys, after all. Trouble from the get-go, I tell ya.)
