Well after Roy got into hot water for the Buffalo image I decided i was not going to carve snakes so took a different path and ordered Loras book hoping the Buffalo was in the book which was what the hoo ha was all about.
Purchased the book via amazon second hand books got mine for $10.38 and a few dollars shipping. Looks like a great instructional book have a fascination for these wood spirits.
But to set the record straight the buffalo Roy was going to show us how to carve was only featured in the book as a finished item there is no plan in the book for it.
Guess i am going to have to look to find the buffalo picture somewhere else.
Going to cut some bass wood i have into a slab and set about carving something from the book as soon as i get the "honey do list" of fixing the webbing on the couches done. I wanted to dispose of them but had to order webbing which got picked up same time as the book. So got my spare time cut out for me for now.
Warning....Amazon books especially the second hand side where interesting odd "how to " books can be had for a few $$ can be a dangerous place to browse.
