    Default Help needed deciphering a name

    I am hoping some of you can help with this one. I am not sure how the name carved into the wood under the acorn is spelt. Is it Dreming or Dreiving. I am not sure if its Dreiving then the "i" in "eiv" is different than the one in the "ing". Please let me know what you think, all help is appreciated.

    The name is "WIDDEL" - written in the old German script-

    Horst
    "He who hesitates is lost - is not only lost but miles from the next exit"

    Hi Horst,
    The name I am after is right at the bottom of the board under the acorn and leaves.
    Thanks.

    it is "DREWING" as some have said.

    look at the initial down stroke to the letters "W" and "N". that's the key. they are the same and a peculiarity to the way the individual carved these two letters. the small separation between the down stroke and the rest of both letters can confuse but it is what it is.
