Always been amazed by those folks who can look at a block of wood and see a figure like that in there. Kinda like the the old-world sculptor when asked how a man can carve an elephant. He responded, "Is easy to carve elephant. You get very large piece of stone and chip away all that which does not look like elephant."

And for those folks I guess it's just that simple.

Me, I can take fairly large tree and cut away all that which does not look like firewood.

Yeah, off and on for the last couple years I've tinkered with carving in basswood and cottonwood bark, but still not enough time to get very good at it. Back in High School I took several years of ceramic classes. That's much easier, if you want a nose on your project, grab a chunk of clay and slap a nose on it. With wood, you have to remove wood that's not needed and once you take it away you can add it back on. It's enjoyable but quite a challenge.

Here's another one I like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-uRYZLDKqs

Shin Lim.

I post this because this man is amazing. My father was a Magician and worked his way through college doing stage magic. Cards were his forte' and he never ceased to amaze. I only wish he were alive to see this man. He would have been impressed. Shin Lim was on Pen & Teller's "Fool Us" twice. He fooled them twice. Enjoy.

I certainly don't want to play poker with this man...

Yes, when music was still music. Unlike today where autotune is king.

Any Christopher Walken fans? This, from Seven Psychopaths.

Lest we forget..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3MQGYRYK9M

And, from the lesser known "Pooll Hall Junkies." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3MQGYRYK9M

Always surprised this made it past the NBC censors https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhQGLh0ehCw
