The Roger's Mantel
Here is a carving done for the Rogers family in Haverhill, Mass. It is a
depiction of their farm as seen from the passing highway that borders their
farm. A few elements were added to the scene for sentimental reasons. For
example, the father's favorite tractor and their new dog were put in the
foreground. There are also nine cat tails, five cows and three ducks
representing kids, grandkids, and greatgrandkids in the family.
The carving pattern was derived from actual pictures that were put in a sketch
that Kristie made for the Rogers approval
