A Look Back to 1984

Back in 1984 I carved the presidential seal for the podium of the Democratic Convention.  That was the year that Geraldine Ferraro ran as the first female vice presidential candidate representing a major American political party.  Check out some of the pictures below.  

Back when I first started teaching woodcarving I carved the Presidential Seal for the podium for the Democratic Convention that was held in San Francisco that year.  That was a few years ago.

Here are my woodworking and woodcarving partners for this project.  Al Croutch carved the letters.  He taught me letter carving.  He is still going strong at 90+ years.  Jon Lopez was the founder of the woodworking school were I taught my very first beginning woodcarving class.  He painted and installed the plaque.  The paint needed to be exacting and specific colors to "read" correctly on the TV screen.
