    E9BC9582-562E-4C95-89A5-72ECD89E4CEC.jpeg I might have posted this guy before. Still working on him. I think he sat waiting for a year. There is hope, cuz I see a light at the end of the tunnel.

        Looks very nice and maybe a fellow out of the 1800s?

                  Looking good Kris, Why the wait, Were you waiting for his hand to grow back????
                  If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

                    I didn't realize that carving is like seasoning meat, it gets better with age, looking forward to seeing this finished

                      Thanks for the comments guys. Woodburner, I've been looking at vintage fashion photos, this guy's outfit could be 1930's. I think I'll see what my daughter thinks. She's got a degree in fashion design. While it may not be correct in all aspects, it's for my own shelf and I'm good with it. Merle, thanks for the vote of confidence, the kind that nudges me enough to keep after it. Tom, ya made me laugh. Thanks JoeB, hope you're right!

                        He's sure a fine looking guy. I have lots of trouble with hands myself. I try to do them on the piece but sometimes the redo's get added on.

                          Thanks, Joe. I do have the hand carved. Must admit, I was worried the coat sleeve and hand weren’t going to match the other side, but after a little refining, I think they’ll be pretty close.

                            Will be watching with interest to see what you do with the coat sleeve. Perhaps a walking stick with the hand atatches and glued into the sleeve or maybe a hand holding a decent sized pocket watch whixch would still be period. will be interesting to see what the plan for it turns out to be. Best of luck with the finishing.

                              Making progress. I’m about ready to paint, but I might work on the accessories first. Glenn, you R close. His walking stick will be in his right hand. The hand I carved separately has something else. Hoping I can carve what I’m thinking.
