I took the time this morning to take pictures of a few of the carvings I have done lately, and they are posted here in my gallery. The majority of what I carve are caricature bolo ties. To the untrained eye the purpose or meaning behind these might be lost, but to most Boy Scouts and their leaders, these are a fun addition to their uniforms. In fact, I began carving them in order to offer them as awards and incentives for Cub Scouts in our local Pack and for those Boy Scout who earned their Eagle award. I actually learned to carve them from a friend of Bill Burch (the man that made these types of bolos famous among Boy Scout leaders). Now my little hobby has begun to take a lot more of my time than I had ever expected due to the large demand, but I do enjoy carving and painting them. For those of you who are woodcarvers, I should mention that I only use a congress style knife to do all of the carving.
