Wild Bill

Here he is, after a few coats of satin lacquer. I debated trying to bore out and fill the knot hole in his neck, but decided against it. After all nature put that knot hole there, so who am I to say it doesn't belong? I think it adds character, along with the wormy holes. I've had several people ask why I would carve wormy butternut? I respond, why not? Take whatever the world gives you and make the best of it. Good advice for carving and life.
