  • Head turned guy.

    I'm pretty happy with this piece. First one with a head turned, more movement, and on a pedestal. I watched a Dave Stetson tutorial. He is a good teacher.
    I especially like this guy's shoes, and his shirt hanging over his belt in the back.
    Thanks.

    Very nice and yes the anytime you get away from all squared up the piece becomes more interesting. You’ve come a long way in a short time.

      Looks good Anders. It's all these little things that you need to remember that add up to a great carving. You've done that!

      Congrats!

        Thanks Bob and Ed, appreciate the kind words. Now only if I can get my 5 and 7 year olds to like them. I will show them something I'm proud of and they will look away as soon as possible ......"it's creeping me out papa.". Lol.

            Fantastic carving, When my niece was about 5 she was scared of the carvings and cried when I showed them to her. She is 15 now and enjoys my carvings

              Nicely done! Like others have said, your carvings show a lot of work and thought.

                Boy Anders, that is a big jump from the little guys you have been carving. You did a great job, and must have followed that video very closely. How tall is it?
                If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

                  I am impressed with where you were and where you have become. You are a great inspiration to those who want to carve, but think it is just too hard. I have enjoyed your watching your progress! Earl

                    Thanks Tom! He is 5" tall. Yeah, Dave does good tutorials and explains the process well - leaving mounds for eyes, putting in wrinkles in clothes right after the rough in stage (I was trying to do it near the end before), using gouges and V- tools, etc. I have been practicing a lot on off cuts and doing stuff I normally wouldn't do. I think that process has helped a lot.
                    Thanks again. Can't wait to get your knife massager. I bought some Ramelson gouges and v-tools and they need tuning up big time.

                        The amount of detail you gave this guy, really makes it into a fine, fine carving

                          Well done, Anders! I can see Dave's influence all over that carving, from eyes to right shoulder raised, head turned, wrinkles, shoes, etc. Very nice!

                            He looks great! Love the sheepish grin. Where did you access the Stetson video? Since there are no clubs near me due to COVID, I’ve been considering taking either an online class or private lesson. Sounds like it really elevated your carving.

                              That's outstanding. So carefully carved with very sharp edges.
