Here's my first ever attempt at carving. It's a carving of a trophy finger - a shrunken finger I guess! Only this one is actual size... I saw one something like it on a Twilight Zone episode called "The Jungle". One feather is from my Peruvian Nanday, and the other one is from a yellowhammer I believe. I did enjoy carving it... Try not to laugh, Ben!

Weird, in a shiver-down-my-spine-way. Great Idea, I had to save that image to my collection of remarkable carvings. Thumbs up! (though maybe not for this poor fella )

That's cool! I really did not think I would care for a finger carving much but you nailed it. Makes me want my own finger carving congrats

Looks good. Now you need to make a whole bunch so they can all hang from a big brass keyring.

That's pretty cool - all 5 (or ten) would make a cool wind chime.

Thanks so much for the kind words MarkusK, keigs20, Hakalugi, tikigap and Clarita. My kids gave me feathers from their collection and the beads. Now my little boy wants a finger too. Thanks again for looking and commenting!

Nice Voudon feel.

Can you carve one with a ring on it?

Hey Sam! Good to seez you! That's a fine looking digit there. Can you carve a middle finger for me? Send it over to Benzo, C.O.D. Thanks!

Wild stuff Sam.

The finger reminds me of "The Monkey's Paw."

Thanks so much, seeksurf, Greenman, Buffbad, GMan and Lake Surfer!

Hey greenman - I'm pretty sure I can carve one with a ring... Just send the ring right along!

Hey GMan - Ben's the inspiration! I can't do that!

Nice finger Sam, gives new meaning to "giving the finger",, but GMAN's proposal to "give" the finger and then make the recipient PAY for it is a New and devious twist which only a sane person would contrive.I'll get together a list of a dozen peeps to send the finger to, and All "cod" too! Make GMAN's old and crotchety with boogers under the fingernail.

Excellent finger btw. About time you carved something!
