My site name is Mr. Ed. I am a retired Air Force officer and retired middle school teacher who has been carving for over 30 years, not including carving as a Boy Scout leader for over 25 years. I began serious carving as a member of the Mid-America Woodcarvers in Omaha, Nebraska, where I tool lessons and carved with some of the best carvers in America. I am currently a member of the Alamo Area Woodcarvers club in San Antonio, TX. and carve with the carvers at the Comal County Senior Services Center in New Braunfels, TX. My passions are Santa carvings and cottonwood bark carvings. I have completed several walking sticks and canes, but wish to learn more about the walking stick craft.
