    Default 1 of my top three hobbies

    Well Metal Detecting is my #1 passion, but since moving back to the DFW metroplex I haven't been able to indulge in that hobby much, so about a year ago I got into stone carving. Stone carving and straight shaving are similar to detecting for me. I can zone out, relax and most importantly get a break from my crazy kids.

    Very nice work indeed. Can't wait to see what you can do with razor scales.

    Very cool and interesting hobby. How did you get started in that?
    What a curse be a dull razor; what a prideful comfort a sharp one

    I started carving into smaller stones back when I was a kid. Back then they were more like etchings. Then out of boredom as an adult I went back to it, and it's progressed into full on relief sculpting. Been kind of figuring it out as I go.

    This is my most recent. It's my Family Coat of Arms. Although I did take some artistic liberties adding the battle ax, sword and crosses.

    I have a couple sculpting hammers and a small set of sculpting chisels. I like working with Flagstone because it's very easy to work with, but also remains durable once it's finished. I just really like the overall look of Flagstone.
