    Looks like a fun project and I'd do a rough one, or two, in order to focus in what you want. Yep, post pics.

    Not only would it be feasible... it will be delightful and will bring a smile to everyone's face who sees it.

    Go for it! And be sure to post photos!
    Photos of your first one, and the second, and the next, etc...

    It sounds like what some carvers call a "shelf sitter," a figure with legs dangling.

    Sounds like it might work Muddy, Give it a try, then show us a picture of the results. Lynn Doughty glues up legs, and arms, and hats, so about anything might be a go.

    started a topic Carving Project

    Carving Project

    I enjoy flat plane miniature figures leaning toward Gene Messer style and have been thinking about a carving project and was wondering if you could give some advice.
    I would like to carve a boy sitting as if on a dock and fishing. Maybe a downhome barefoot country boy with a cane pole. I was thinking about using 1"X1" and maybe gluing two blocks together only part way so there would be a body block sitting upright and another block for the legs dangling. Just a thought, what do you think? Would it be feasible.
