    I'm curious. Why is this dated a month from now? Nice carvings though.

              Nice carvings, Herb!

              Joe: Yes - grain can wander, splits easily, quite a bit harder than basswood. Can be carved with knife and palm tools, but requires that you take small thin chips, and watch the grain.

                Yes, Wyoming is always ahead of the the times ... I like the harder woods. A challenge .. Good bust with the Bear foot imprint and bark , hair.. I would like to see more of Larry's work.
                Thanks uvawyo for the post and that old roper is great too..Looks confused. Haa

                  Nice work. The cowboy is great but then I have a thing for these little character pieces. Walnut can vary a lot in the way it works and that can happen in a small piece where one part carves like butter and the other like hardened steel. It does hold detail nicely. It often has gorgeous grain but can be a trial to get the grain filled for a smooth high gloss finish.
