  • New dog topper.

    Finely I am back in the shop and carving I have orders for two sticks, one dog and one eagle. It has been over a month sense I sat down at the bench just to carve. Feels good! I will post progress pictures.

                    Merle eyes are hard for my also. I went to the hardware store and got 4 different dynamiters of brass tubes 1/8th, 1/4 , 3/8th,1/2 . I cut 1inch off each one and epoxyed those cut offs into 1 inch dynamiter dowels that I had drilled a ½ inch hole in and cut to 2inches lengths and rounded one end. Using a burr I sharpened the edge of each tube from the inside. They work well for making an eye ball then I cut or recess that circle back in to the head and create the eye brow and lid line. I hope that makes sense and is helpful. It works for me.

                          This is a 5/16th eye punch. As you can see it is just scrap dowel and piece of brass tubing.

                          I sharpen on the inside if the tube
                          IMG_0498.jpg

                          Then I draw a center line. Then the punch I mark the eye ball. Then shape the eye and recess it back into the head
