  • Doug Linker's Snowman

    I felt that I needed to take a break from carving the " usual " Santa ornaments and wanted to try one of Doug Linkers tutorial videos . I looked through his YouTube site and thought his snowman tutorial would be fun ( and fun it was). So here is my attempt . Two were following the measurements suggested by Doug, and the other two I reduced by about 20%.
    If you're looking for a fun project that requires very few tools ( I used 2 knives and a V tool ) I would suggest having a look at his site.

        Look out Soggy, You are going to get hooked on some of Doug’s carvings. Great job.
        If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

              You're probably right Tom,.... he has a lot to choose from and the few that I've watched are well put together and easy to follow

                      Nice! I had not seen the clothed snowman video. Another DL snowman was the first successful whittle I ever did. His videos are super. I find myself applying the techniques and basic ideas to my own variations. The 3-snowball version snowman body became the basis for caterpillars/inchworms. The windblown beard on his simple wizard was combined with his hillbilly to a skiing 'gnomebilly' I will give to my daughter for Christmas this year. Great building blocks for beginners like myself, and obviously fun for the more skilled, too!

                          Tom is right. He has great videos. I've done snowman, Native American, hillbilly and little men. He has new one on santa ornament that is neat.
