In July 2006, I had knee replacement surgery, and during the next few weeks, wasn't too mobile, but was recovering nicely. At the 6 week checkup, I saw the X-ray of my new knee. It looked like my doctor had completed a perfect carving.

My spirits were high, my hands were strong, my knives were sharp. I found it only fair to also carve something for him. So I made this plate as a "thank you" card.  

Was I ever lucky?! He loves wood as much as I do. I only hope, that he made fewer mistakes on his carving, than I did on this plate.
