Ove Nielsen (Jan & Lars’ Dad) is a master ship model builder. Here he shows us his M/V. Falcon Rock.
In Ove’s words:
The name of the Ship is ” M/V. Falcon Rock ” 1/2 ” scale, its about 25″ long, it is a Fisheries Patrol boat anno 1960, it is in private owner ship for the past 12 years and it is at the moment down in Cowichan Bay. It took about 400 Hrs to make, so I was burning the candle in both ends.
We got a plethora of submissions from customers showing of their work since early June. We threw in a couple of milling jobs we had done as well. Enjoy

Tim was kind enough to give us photos of several of his beautiful sculptures. He describes him and his art as such:
I am a self taught woodcarver living in the small, beautiful village of Sointula on an island off North Vancouver Island. My work is an expression of a my love and fascination of the coastal world around me. I take great joy in my art and in particular the constant learning. I feel as if I have been constantly learning since I started carving 29 years ago with a swiss army knife sitting on a beach while cruising the coast by kayak. I have always pursued my art as a way of making an income as a means of living in this remote part of the coast. I work primarily in yellow cedar which I can obtain locally, I also use red cedar, yew wood, maple, alder and black walnut.
