Why do I like torture?

Well making progress on this cutting for the State Fair. Man I sometimes wonder why I choose these hard fret patterns to do? I must like to sit and be tense as I cut. This is working out so far so good. But if I make a mistake I am going to be devastated after all these hours.

People ask all the time do you sell these things you enter into the fair? I am like no. If I told what it would charge your mouth would just drop open and you would stare at me like I was crazy. Thus why it is a hobby. Every now and then someone will ask me to make them something and I will. But they have always been somewhat simple stuff that I could do rather quickly. Not one of these portraits.

Someday I just hope my daughter will want to hang one of these in her house. That to me would be success in my hobby. She has already taken one of my dragons I cut 3 years ago. I always loose the dragons. I did manage to keep one of them. I need to make more dragons! I love dragons. The problem is after the State Fair is done I will be starting on Christmas presents! When do I have time? In January I will but then it is too cold outside in my wooden shed. Then come spring I start thinking about what to do for the State Fair. Never ending cycle the State Fair.

If it all works out I hope to be either nearly done or done by Monday night. I want to finish the right side Saturday. The Sunday try to finish the beard area. Monday do the mouth. It would be nice to be able to cut the frame next weekend. We will see if I can manage the time to get it all done.

Thanks for looking!
