  • Female form carving

    So my client has agreed to let me post progress photos. Provided I make sure that none of the original photos appear in my posts.

    So we started here.

    This is my rough out.

    And this should give you some idea of where I hope to end up. After enlarging the original photos to scale, they were place under a .08” sheet of plexiglass and traced. These and the photos will be my reference materials for this carving.

        Photo update:

        Working on basic shapes, big gouges digging out lots of wood. Wishing I had a decent bandsaw.

        Well Christmas is coming. Thanks for looking.

          Your project is really taking shape. And I want a work space with a view like yours! It has to inspire your what ever your project is.

            Randy,

            It is great, and we are in the middle of our biannual hummingbird migration so a bonus view these days.

                The hummingbirds are leaving here now two. When we really see them is in March - April when the whole city is full of blooming Azaleas.

                        You are welcome to come and use mine Nebraska, it would make quick work of that excess material. Looking forward to watching your progress.

                          Merle,

                          It actually is one of my surprising observations. Naked woman, eagle head, Einstein’s mustache it all just taking measurements and moving wood.
