    Well done little snow dude! I think the finishing really sets it apart. Love the scarf and the texturing in the arms.

    Elegant lesson in carving conifer wood. Great design posture, too. I don't think we saw more than 3 days of good "snow-man snow" this winter past.

    Carved first block of my sugar pine stash. This snowman is 9” x 4” x 4”. Finished in acrylics. Hadn’t carved sugar pine in a long while and soon remembered that one must shave the wood off. Large cut removal tends to chip and splinter... great fun to do....

    Nice selection of wood. It is great that she past it on. Look forward to seeing what it becomes.

    Never carved sugar pine but have read it is an excellent carving wood. You really have got a nice lot.

    Make notes of the ring count per inch. You will learn that there is good, better and best.
    In the conifers I carve, 15-30 is best.

    Sweet! I acquired some stock of what I believe is sugar pine, at a garage sale. Yours looks the same. I really enjoyed carving it and it smelled wonderful. Good luck to you.

    Looks like great wood, Dennis. There used to be a full page add for sugar pine in WCI a few years back...

    started a topic ~~~ Sugar Pine ~~~

    ~~~ Sugar Pine ~~~

    Received a text from a lady who’s grandfather was a blind woodcarver. Although he had passed 11 years ago, his granddaughter had kept his wood box and was ready to let it go. Not wanting to use as kindling, it was offered to me. His box contained mostly all Sugar Pine. What a gem of a find for me. Sugar Pine is hard to find.
