    Hi Dale ,
    What do you mean a broken arm, did you get one ?
    I really like the Einstein relief. Surprised you were not so thrilled with those results that you gave up everything and became a carver extrordinaire as your life's choice. Assuming you have a broken arm I wish you well... and thanks for joining in with us all. tis a mixed bag of nuts!

    Broken arm sucks. Since you can't do any woodworking how about working on the shop, like organizing and cleaning? I have no idea what condition your shop is in but I bet there are some things that could keep you busy.

    So Dale does this mean that you are stuck carving in only one direction? Sorry to hear about the broken arm but on the positive side it is not that bad a time of year to be layed up. I hear that a good hot rum is good medicine for a broken arm.

    I like both pieces, Dale. (Saw them on your website a few days ago, too.) Sorry to hear about the arm, but in time, it'll heal and you'll be back at it before the weather warms back up.

    Sucks about the arm, I've broken my left arm twice and my right one once. Left arm was busted in two spots one time, above the elbow and at the wrist, so I had this HUGE cast that did not let my whole arm move, I had to rig up a bent piece of coat hanger to be able to close the fly on my jeans Yes, the was during high school

    Hope you heal fast!

    Hey Dale, just thought of something.
    Clay! I have a friend that does the face carving about that thick, 3/4" only she does it with clay. Much less torque needed. Wish I knew some one handed jokes to cheer you up but I am not much of a joke kind of guy.
    Hang in there, oh by the way, what were you doing that you ended up with a broken arm at work?

    Sorry about the arm................
    Why not take up painting, requires one arm until you heal.

    thought of clay, thought of painting but being left handed and not smart enough to break the right arm makes things more trouble than worth. it is a big enough job to feed myself. there are other things that have been a learning experience also.
