    I have kid-sized hands so it’s actually easier for me to carve the small ones as I prefer to hold my carvings vs using a vise. They go pretty quickly too I find so you don’t need all that patience!

            Great work! I wonder how you were able to make the nose so prominent, on a small piece of wood? Is it because the nose is pointing up?

            Have you done 4" figures using the 1" x 1" pieces of wood? Or is 2" better, to keep everything in proportion.

              Hi Rodster. Yes it’s prominent because it’s pointing up and because it’s rather bulbous. I actually just loaded a free nose carving tutorial page that might give you some insight on my process on my website (https://www.carvingjunkies.com/how-to-carve-a-nose.html). I typically use 1 x 1 x 3 inch blocks but you can go taller or shorter like this one was. Hope this helps! P.S. I find a straight edged knife (I have 2 from OCC Tools) works best to avoid crumbing on the small blocks.
