    Thanks for the instructions on how to use Flckr. I'm still trying to get that to work with no luck.

    Am I still below the threshold for number of posts?

    Looks like it works now! Thanks!

    And as a fellow woodworker, those rocking horses are spectacular! I can't believe you do it all by hand. I love using my hand planes and chisels but that's a ton of work! Nice job!

    What kind of wood do you build those out of?

    Each one must consume a lot of material due to all the pieces you have to laminate up before you start carving. That's super impressive.

    here is a little video clip and it dose not take as much as you might think, the thing to remember is you have to carve the head before you start adding sections. I only real horse hair and hand made tack and saddle

    Wow...mahogany...I can't imagine doing all that carving by hand in such a hard wood. That's very impressive. Definitely heirloom pieces of furniture.
