Hand Carved Wooden Caricatures

Hand carved wooden caricatures, lighthouses; chess sets, canes, etc. by Chuck Thompson, here in Memphis, TN. I have been carving wood since the 80’s but, just retired last year and have time for many more carvings. I have one really, really cool one, carved and signed in 1987, a bust of Willie Nelson made from a piece of oak firewood. I picked it up to chunk it in the fire and as I did, there was Willie looking at me from the cover of TV guide. That piece of wood reminded me of Willie somehow. Willie was my father’s favorite star, along with Waylon, so, it had to be his Christmas present that year. Mom and Dad stood in line in 1990 something, (I cannot read the year, but, looks like 92 or 97), for over 3 hours to get Willie to sign it right above my signature. Dad passed in 99, but, he told me about the line when he got it signed. I will soon post this piece if I can talk my wife into it. LOL, she did not appreciate the idea. All of this and my other stuff too, (except for Willie right now), can be found at http://www.heirloomsbychuck.com Willie is not for sale yet, but, there is a photo of him on this ad. I show this so that you can know what kind of stuff I like to make. Visit my store! Remember, this bust was made of Willie 30 years ago. It looked like Willie at the time. You could actually do all your Christmas, Birthdays, Mother’s and Father’s days, etc. shopping right there because I have much more than carvings. All of it is economically priced too. If I sell Willie, he will not be so economical. My pieces vary in price, but, I am going to say starting at $10.00. If I sell Willie he will be at least $7500. Most of my stuff is $10 to $35.00
