        Yes Mark it is one of my originals,although I will say that your
        santa was some of the impression on
        the long stocking hat.

            Bart:
            Santa was carved from a 2 3/4"x 2 3/4"x 5 1/2" piece of basswood.

              Mark that is going to be one amazing Santa I saw your last project and I was very impressed I am sure that this one will be just as good. Being a Santa collector I cant wait to see the finished product.

                  Mark,

                  Really looks nice. I agree with an earlier comment - very crisp, clean lines and cuts so early in the process....very impressive.

                  The shape and proportion of the head and face is really nice. You should do a step by step for us!

                    That is a good job, I've tried to do that and can't. Easier said than done. Nice work.

                      Very clean carving. Your carving shows me that you know exactly what each cut will achieve. Your stages of carving development are much appreciated by a beginner like me. TOM H

                          Mark -
                          Great work and fast, too! One question - do you use hand tools or a rotary shaping device like a dremel or foredom?
