Carving A Cowboy’s Horse – Part 10 – Carving & Gluing On The Stirrups

With the stirrup blanks cut out we can now carve and attach them.  Guess what?  WE’RE DONE!  At least with the carving part.  We still have to paint this cayuse.  But before we do that we’ll put her in a scene which will add to her appeal when that buyer happens by.  After that it’s on to the paint table.


  1. An excellent wrap up on a fine project...can't wait for the finishing work to bring it to life. You make it look so easy, that is the mark of a truly skilled person, it looks effortless. i can attest that at my place, considerable effort is required, but I enjoy the tutorials so much they are the highlight of my day. Thanks for your effort, and Merry Christmas.

  2. "Ditto", you make it look almost effortless. Guess, that's what happens when 'you' know what you are doing. (-:

    Great camera work and explaination of the details of the stirrups.

    Hope that you both and your family have a Merry Christmas.


  3. This has been a great tutorial Lynn. Question..what is the size of the motor and speed you are using on the sand-o-flex wheel? I recently bought one but use it with my cordless drill. The shaft on it is only 1/4 inch. Thanks Ed.

  4. I just use an old 1725 rpm motor I scrapped from an old appliance. Works great!
