Default Hi All

..finally have a few minutes to sit down and write.

Nice to e-meet everyone, a quick intro...

I have been carving on and off since the '70's
(Native to the Adirondacks). We have been in FL since early 80's
Most of my carvings lately have been fish, frogs and fish decoys
and ice fishing jigsticks, believe it or not...

I managed to finish a Saltwater Reef fish carving in time for
the 2005 'Worlds', Springfield IL..had a nice time there and got a 'blue' also.

Oh, I usually don't take pictures during my carving but I uploaded some shots of a recent Frog/Orchid piece that did quite well in Florida shows.

In the 'spirit of learning' how a carving actually goes from pencil sketch to competition.....I hope you all enjoy them......and if anyone knows a quicker way to make Orchid stems that look real...please let me know, :-).

Regards to All, and Happy July 4th.
Bob Eck, Plantation, FL

Hi Bob,

Was a pleasure meeting you at the World show, even though it was only for a short moment or two. Two more years until the 2007 Show in Reno, that should be fun.
The link you gave us Bob to your wonderful Moorish Idol fish is okay, however, I did go there to take another look at it and I see Donna has changed the homepage picture to another members fish, so your Moorish Idol is no longer there. You might want to change your link to another spot where the good people can see it. It is definitely one that people will want to see. Maybe you can put it into the Gallery on this site.

Happy 4th to all

Welcome aboard Bob, great looking frog scene. Well done! You're going to like it here.

Before they slip me over the standing part of the fore sheet, I'd like to pipe: "Up Spirits" or "Splice the Main Brace" .....................one more time.
