Determination Carving

January 2020

Finally, after making the clay model many months ago, I found some spare time to start carving again. This carving is about my woodworking life. With good and bad times, with struggles and success, with blood sweet and tears. My brother Dan Zongker and I have battled many storms and enjoyed sunny days for over 30 years now. This carving I call “Determination”, and what better way to show this, then to have a man carving himself out of a tree. 

Here is a clay model that I’ve been working on, I just have the hands , mallet, & gouge left. This model is man carving himself out of a tree, I call it Determination. He is 36″ tall. Thank you for looking.
