      Wonderful job Carl. Is he finished with BLO? It looks like he was made from a 2 x 2 block. Is that right?

              Fred, Slowmover, Thanks for the nice comments. Joe, he was still a little wet from the BLO, and carved from a 1.75 x 1.75 block, he was rough carved, and not band-sawed.

                Super carving. You captured the mountain man "essence" very nicely.

                      The only thing wrong with your mountain man is that you didn't carve a complete body! If you did and the body was half as good as the bust it would be one heck of a carving! Nice work!

                        Very nice Carl, That is one nice bust, and looks like a very long blade you are using. Is that one you made?

                          Again thank all of you for your comments. Tom, that is a 2 inch Denny blade, I glued it to a piece of rosewood. I like that blade, but make sure I use a glove, a lot of sharp steel moving around.

                              That is a nice carving. A lot of detail on a small piece.
