I retired from the plumbing trade, our local college offered a wood carving class, and my wife talked me into attending.  After a few lessons I decided I liked it, so I carved this and that, mostly caricatures.  Then one day a friend of mine that carved canes talked me into carving a cane, and so I did and it turned out pretty good.  I then joined the Texas Woodcarvers Guild (TWG) in 1998 and shortly after hurt my knee, so I started using the cane I had carved.  One day the director saw it and said I should teach a class.  After a lot of persuading I agreed to try it.  In the fall of 1998 I started teaching at TWG and have advanced my teaching to Glen Rose, Texas: Rally on the the Rio, Harligen, Texas; Creede Woodcarvers Rendezvous, Creede, Colorado; and Coastal Bend Woodcarving Show, Aransas Pass, Texas.  I am available to teach classes in other areas if someone is interested.
