Started this project with some of that amazing cottonwood bark from Canada. It carves so sweet. I am taking my time as I don’t want to mess up this great piece of bark. I am continuing to push myself forward to learn more and get better at carving.
What are you carving?
Do you love cottonwood bark.
Putting on some finish on some carvings from this last season of carvings. I like this finish better than some I have used. It takes a few coats but looks really good.
What’s your favorite carving finish? Do you always put on finish?
I can’t wait to carve these guys. Such amazing bark, I don’t want to waste them!
I carved this for a friend who gave me a Zune 32 gig. I found a wormy spot in the beard which made it brittle and discolored. Carving butternut is great though. I wish I had gone deeper in the wood and popped the face out more. He loved it.
Here are some pics of carving in various stages. All of these would be in 2016.
