I found a very cool newspaper article with my father, Dave Sr. showing how to carve a model totem pole in 3 easy steps.

This model totem pole, by my grandmother, Ellen Neel, was recently returned to the family by a very nice lady from Seattle. Her late grandmother owned it since 1950, and the granddaughter wanted to see it returned to the family. Such a wonderful gesture.  It is being held by Ellen's great-granddaughter, Ellena Neel.

An Eagle Bracelet with the engraving completed. It's nice to see the whole design before it is shaped and polished.
