    Thanks for asking about the project,I've had my Father from out of state visiting so I didn't do any more yet.He got on the road at 4:00 a.m.
    this morning so I plan on finishing the carving and painting today.

    Mark,
    Have you done anymore on the Santa I am sitting with baited breath waiting to see the progress. I see you do all your work by hand that is wonderful. I too have a Fordom have had it for three years now and never used it.

    Everything I do is by hand,not that I wouldn't do it with power if I was any
    good with the fordem.I don't think their is enough bandaids at Foodlion if I was to try it.I appreciate all the positive feedback from the web,it makes you strive to do better.

    Once again Mark you have outdone yourself! Such a great display from the initial drawing to completing the roughout. I can't wait to see it finished and painted. Very nice smooth lines. Can't wait to see it in a few weeks in Charlotte!

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

    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

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

    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!
