  • Any dog carvers here?

    Would like to see what you’ve carved. Dachshunds, French poodles, bulldogs?

    I only carve wood...does dogwood count? (Sorry!)

    I haven't carved dogs, but I have to carve one of my miniature Schnauzer...I just know I won't really capture his essence, though, so I'm reluctant to give it a go.

            I carved a lab, trying to make it look something like my daughters lab. Also my first attempt at finishing with watered acrylics via airbrush.

                My first relief carving was my girlfriend's dachschund. Mahogany, 8" x 10" - that was 72 years ago.

                  That’s a sweet Doxi. Nice detailing around the box edges too. Thanks for posting it.

                    Then I remembered a more recent dog in relief: This sleeping miniature long-hair doxy was included in a scene called "Grandpa's Watch" cause the tall case clock incorporated an inherited pocket watch.

                      I've done a few:
                      Bloodhound
                      Dachshund (full grown and a pup)
                      Dalmation pup
                      Golden Doodle pup
                      Yorkie pup (one sitting, one standing)
                      Beagles
                      maybe a couple of others I can't remember. You can see some of them here https://www.instagram.com/claudeswoodcarving/
                      and more by searching for the specific breed here in the forums.

                      I have included front, side, back photos of most of them here in the forums. If you print out the photos, you can re-size them and use them as patterns.

                        Toycarver, Yes I did give it to her. The carving is of her silver lab. Before I started carving, I did a scroll saw puzzle of her chocolate lab. She has both displayed in her home.

                          Always hoping for a nice slice that won't need sanding!
