It's Throw-Back Thursday!

Throw-Back Thursday seem s to be the thing at the moment so here's my carving contribution to that meme!  I can't remember exactly when I did this one although it was quite some time ago and I'm too lazy to go back and check for the Blog post.

Where's The Beef?

Here's my latest.  Seems this poor fella was getting ready to sink his choppers into that big T-bone only to end up with Beans and Biscuits!  This one stands about 10-12 Inches tall with the walnut base.  Ought to be pretty neat once it's painted.  I still have to locate material for the beans.  While I've used mustard seeds in the past they would be too small for this piece.  I'm thinking either buckshot or BB's.   Was going to name it Biscuits, Beans, and Bacon but was worried that some Muslim would have been offended.  Yeah...right!

The little fork was the weakest point of the piece so I reinforced it was a metal rod at the bend.  Now it's probably the strongest!  I carved the fork then cut it in two.  Snipping off the head of a wire brad and bending it to match the forks shape I drilled matching holes in each piece and glued it together.  It will take a determined effort for someone to break it.

Hope you like him and there are some more photos in the Gallery.  Next up?  A wrangler carrying a saddle!

Yellow Hawk

Here's a small one, standing about 10" with the base.  Just a quickie but I thought I'd show it off.  Really bright colors and I might darken up his skin tones a bit.  No more photos but your comments are always welcome.
