"Manners... Maketh... Man..."
A small plaque to carve.

A large one that reads like this-

/''So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative
/to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity,
/and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality
/nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future.
/The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life
/comes from our encounters with new experiences and hence there is no greater joy
/than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.''
/                                                 Christopher McCandless

Excellent workmanship and once again, thanks for sharing.

"nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future"
Au contraire starving to death in a broken down bus in the middle of nowhere is way more dangerous  >:D
Nice job though
