  • It was just a practice piece...

    The other night I had a bit of time to kill and thought I would do a little practice. Thinking of the round nose and low brim hat. Fully intending to just toss it when done. Well, I liked the way the nose and brim turned out and thought “let’s see what I can do”. Still working on him, but there is no way I am throwing this away!

    He is looking good James, Can definitely Doug's infleuence on your carving. Love his videos myself.
    If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

          Thanks Ron.
          you folks cant really see it too well, but as you look at the carving, the wood on the left is actually darker than the right. Harder too and chips out easily. I definitely need to be more cautious when working that side. If I had known I was going to actually finish this, I would not have chosen a piece of wood that I had decided was scrap! LOL

            Very nice piece, James. The beard looks nice as well as the rest. It looks like a Doug or Vladimire style, and both are great guys to follow...as I do. Good looking fellow and carving.

                  That's the beauty of our hobby. You just never quite know what's going to poke out of that piece of wood. It could be a keeper or it could be a lesson learned. See it through to the end and see where it goes.

                    I don't know about you, but once I create a carving, it is almost like one of the kids that I help create if you know what I mean!

                        Thanks Herb, JoeB, Claude and Tinwood.
                        JoeB, I know what you mean about the carvings we create. The kids (grown now) and others have liked them so much that they asked for them! I am going to be busy before Christmas making more!
