My latest 2 finished

The carving on the left was one of my better faces especially the nose and below the mouth.  He is a pretty stern looking dude.

My next project I tried to carve from picture of this actor. I have had the pic awhile and always looked at it. I finally decided to give it a try.  My son says I should do it like 5 times and see the improvement and the observations I would gain.  I may.  I see many things I missed as I study it.   But it was still an enjoyable project nonetheless.  I am getting low on bark so need to put an order in for the winter carving.  I may have more time as no yard work and I won’t be able to walk or ride mountain bike.  Carving on .

I am not sure if I will put this on my Etsy store. Here is a link to that. Click here

Christmas Carving

I have big carving goals at Christmas, but never seem to get all those projects done.  I have spent increased time in the shop and got a few done.  A sunflower for my daughter and a mountain man, personalized for my father-in-law. I have also tried my hand at some more spoon carving.  It is hard than I thought, but I am determined to keep at it, as wooden spoons are pretty cool. Here are some pics.
