Carving A Cowboy’s Horse – Part 12 – Building A Gate
Ever build a wooden gate? Well, here’s your chance! While it might look a little involved for a caricature carving, I like to do things the same way it would be done if it were done full size. That way it looks authentic and our little gate will look just like it’s big brother out there on the ranch. If you don’t have access to the tools to cut the wooden strips you can find the stock necessary at Hobby Lobby or a local hobby shop in the model airplane section.
Again, going through this much trouble to make a base and setting for the horse might seem a little overboard to some but believe me, it will pay dividends when that prospective buyer shows up at your display. Horses don’t hang around long.
