The Dagda and other Gods in carving

Christians and Pagans of our time period would have the same tools and the art is stylistically the same. Pagan imagery is common on Christian churches (Sheela na gig anyone?)

If anyone wants to have their own Dagda and isn't up to carving one, check this guy out:

Thanks! Your comment gave me an idea - I have a friend from work who works part time at Home Depot so I asked him if to keep an eye out for a scrap piece for me and he came in with one today!

Re: Wanted: Table help

If you continue at this pace you can use the new table to dine with your ancestors.

You might be able to pick up a piece of scrap at home depot to fill in the block you need.
