Bob Wink is no tramp but when it comes to tramp art, you might find Bob loitering around his garage cranking out seemingly box car loads of art.  Bob talked about the history of tramp art which was mostly done by immigrants starting in the mid 1800s.  Wooden cigar boxes made great sources for tramp artisans especially since revenue laws prohibited cigar boxes from being reused for transporting cigars.  Chip carving with a pocket knife is the traditional technique, however, Bob demonstrated how he "motorized" a pocket knife.
