In June 2007, Dick carved a 16 piece nativity scene complete with the stable and Jane did all the painting, except for the stable...Dick painted that as well. We gave this to our granddaughter, Katie and her hubby, Matt as a wedding gift on July, 14, 2007.

Dick spends most of his spare time carving many different things. He's entered birdcarvings into the Southwest Florida Woodcarving Exposition in Ft. Myers, FL for the past several years.  He's Co-Chairman of the PEACE RIVER WOODCARVERS and President of BIG TREE WOODCARVERS.  Both these clubs keep him very busy.  Below are some of the carvings he's done and received ribbons for.
