I finished Geronimo. I wish I would have not touched him with paint. Well, what is done is done. Basswood was OK, but not as nice as doing faces in cottonwood bark.
I have been working on my studio. I wanted to make more room f when I host our carving group and to have other men over to carve. I did finish a few projects to get them off the bench and post. I could have sanded the Green Man (from Chris Pye book) forever, so I stained it and will donate it and the cottonwood bark man to a silent auction at our church to help get our youth group to a Haiti Missions trip to HUT Outreach.
I did my first bowl. It’s in black walnut. I was pretty happy the way it turned out and my wife loved it. It was fun to do and a different genre of carving other than faces.
I can’t wait to carve these guys. Such amazing bark, I don’t want to waste them!
