Jim Cleans Up!

One of the most rewarding things about operating this Blog is when it can give a little help to another carver on their way to perfecting their craft.  This morning I received a note from my good friend Jim Quilici out in California saying that he not only received both 1st and 2nd place for his two entries but he was also presented with the Caricature Carvers of America Merit Award at the Sacramento Woodcarving Show.  From the looks of that carving to the left he certainly deserved the honors.

Way to go Jim!

  5. Mr. Doughty. I don't think you know just how many people you have helped and continue to help. Without your vidoes I surely wouldn't know a darn thing about carving. I feel extremely grateful for all the hard work you and Judy do for us all. Your videos show us the way. Thanks Ginny.
