  • From concept to cowboy

    image.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpeg . While in a class with Chris Hammack, he drew up a cartoon caricature for each of us to try to make a carving out of. Finally got mine done after four years of waiting. 9 inches tall, from basswood. Watco Danish Oil, Acrylic paint, deft , stain, and spray on satin deft. Now to do a base.
    If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

        Hi Tom
        you made a great cowboy, I presume you were waiting four years until the basswood tree got large enough to harvest the wood to complete the project. Thanks for sharing

          Lol....
          That's a great procrastinating excuse.
          I'm waiting for the tree to grow ....

          Its a great carving Tom. Must be those awesome knives you make. The clothes and hat textures look touchably real.

            Thanks Claude, and Greg. Glad you took a look.

            Lol Bruce, that is a perfect excuse for being lazy. Then I have to wait for the paint to dry. I have to remember that one.

            Thanks Nikki. Glad you like him and a special thanks to Chris Hammack for being a great and fun instructor. It makes this one kind of special.

            Carve safe, Tom

                Four Years, man, I always consider you one of the faster cut-ups. Well, he might be a little bent and battered, but the carving and paint are anything but. Nice job Tom!

                  Great job Tom, but then i wouldn't expect anything less , you are one GREAT CARVER. I love the posture of that fellow. I might have to try one of my South Shore Rednecks in that pose.

                    Where to start? That little fellow is just awesome Tom. I love the detail work on the shirt, the hat is just perfect for the character and like Soggy mentioned, the stance is just something you would expect to see for an old grizzled hand like him. Perfect!!

                        Thanks bwj for taking a look.

                        Joe, it took me four years to get up the gumption, then two days to carve it. Another day to burn and paint him.

                        Thanks Soggy, can't wait to see your little Redneck.

                        Thank you Tinwood, I appreciate the comments.

                        And thank to you Brandant. I have missed your creations. Knives can be distracting.

                        Thank all, carve safe, Tom

                              Great job Tom, I appreciate seeing the process. Carving is amazing and so is the color, like the way you did the cookie duster. Fantastic job.
