  • Elves everywhere!

    Here is the latest in the Elf parade! Think I'll call him Happy Hank. He's carved on the corner from basswood, eyes are painted with acrylic, then base coated with my special mixture. Joe Butler calls it my secret sauce. C & Cs are always welcome, and thanks for looking!

          Great carving Steve! Is your basswood from the north? I like the grain showing. It's sort of a miniature pine look.

              Nice carving and finish, Steve, and those eyes sure set it off.

                    BobL, I have no idea where the bass wood came from as it was the last of my craft store wood. I have some 2X2 basswood from Heinicke that I'm getting ready to try.

                        To these Irish eyes, he has more than a touch of Leprechaun about him there. Maybe not in the hat, but I have family who have that face. Grand work that man.
