  • Butternut weasel

    I've always wanted to play with some butternut, and now I finally have some! This is my little "test" carving, just over two inches tall, to see how I like it. I LIKE it.

    I like it too great job looks almost like an abstract weasel but never the less it definatly looks like a weasel. I have to agree with you Sabrina Butternut is a beautiful wood and carves wonderfully probably my most favorite wood to carve. I have a whole shed full of it I must get some down and carve it I forgot how beautiful it is.

      I like the butternut also. Did a gnome one time and the stuff carves nice. Have you ever tried catalpa. I have a bunch drying in the shop and it has some beautiful grain. Nice job on the weasel!

        Nice carving Sabrina, I have junk of butternut I want to carve also, but finding a subject to carve is the had part. By chance do you have a pet ferret?

            Love the little critter , Sabrina, beautiful texture and grain on the wood. Butternut finishes up so warmly.

              Very pretty wood, and I like the gentle shape of the weasle.

                Sabrina, wow your weasel is terrific and I love the finish color. Is that the natural color after varnish? Or did you use a stain. You didn't say but did you like the butternut? Forgive me if you answered my questions in another post haven't read them.

                  Thanks for all the nice comments. Glad you all like it! Unfortunately, no ferret.

                  Yep, quite natural, and quiiite likeable, Mottles.
