  • Introducing Ozark Slim

    This is the lastest of the carving bench. he is basswood. 6-1/2"H x3-1/2' W (at the brim) x2-1/2"T.. Painted with acrylic paint, tried something different on the skin=I got a couple of bottles from "Apple Barrel", Sunkiss peach & Lite Mocka, mixed 1:1, I'm about as pleased as with anything I have done before

    C&C always welcome

    He's a fine looking fellar, I love the way you carved the brim of his hat ( not the straight type that most of us carve) and that corn cob pipe really establishes the fact that he's a from way back in the country.

      Awesome! A moonshine still beside him could be a nice addition.

        Nice looking hat and corn cob pipe, Joe! Just a little critique, though...next time you should blacken/darken the inside of the pipe bowl to give it a more realistic look.

                        Thank you, Larry, I've alway wonder why they pictured them with such high hat, anybody knows?
