  • Dalmation Puppy

    Playful Dalmatian puppy. About 4 inches long. This was a piece of Southern basswood that I had. Got it started and immediately ran into trouble with the wood splitting. Started to throw it away, but decided to go ahead and finish carving. The grain is vertical, and the tail is a dowel that was added on. You can see places where the wood split off. After attempting to smooth them out, I finally stopped as it would cause the shape to change too much IMO.

                  I did the ears with a sharp gouge, taking very small chips at a time. The front legs were also cross-grain, so I had to do them carefully also; particularly where I had to hollow out the area between the legs and the neck/chin.
