  • I call him Pinocchio

    I don't know why I called him that, but that is his name. Basswood, about 9" tall. image.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpeg
    If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

    Well Tom if he ever does tell a lie, at least his nose won't get sun burned..
    Reminds me of the type of hat that the fishermen used back in the 50' and 60's when they were harpooning swordfish .

      Dang Tom, this is a great carving & paint job. How hard was it to keep from breaking that bill off?

        Well Soggy, He cannot tell a lie.

        Joe, The hat is an add-on, so the grain is going with the bill.

          Fine carving and the bill really draws attention to him, Tom. Very nice piece and also painting. I really like the fellow and waiting for him to tell a lie.

                  Thanks Bill, for your nice comments,

                  thanks Merle for taking a look, and you are right about the body position.

                  Thanks Herb. He doesn't have a wife at this point in time.

                  Thanks Hot Texas,, he could have been a cowboy.

                    That looks great. I really like the expression on his face, and the shoes. What do you put on them to get that sheen? Thanks

                      Thanks for looking, A final coat of Deft satin finish spray is what I use. It is on the entire carving.

                        Made me smile Tom. There's a guy with a hat like that in a TV ad. I never thought about carving him.

                          Hi Joe, That is where I got the idea from. Didn,t want to carve the sandwich though.
