The Sheepherder's Wagon is Finally Finished

Added the last touches to my Sheepherders wagon yesterday and thought I would show off the the little beauty.  There will still be a lot of details surrounding the wagon in the final scene but at least the interior and exterior wagon detail is finished.  Hope you like it.  Lots of photos in the Gallery and your comments are welcome and appreciated.


    I know i should say more...but why.


    Lynn, I don't know how you do it.
    As always, Thanks for all you do.


  3. Very convincing!

    The weathering makes all the difference in bringing the wagon to life. Beautiful! Watching to see how you incorporate it in a scene.

  4. That looks good enough to go camping in.. let me find one more horse and how much do you rent it for?....LOL Wish I was small enough to fit in there ...Oh well,I can dream..LOL Great work as always..Thanks,"Teacher Lynn"!

  5. This is one exquisite carving! The detail on the outside is equaled to the detailed items inside You sure give us something to shoot for in future creations of our own.

  6. Incredibly detailed interior. the entire wagon is superbly finished, but the interior blew me away...looks like an entire general store in there..this is one lucky shepard to live in such a mobile mansion. We might label this guy as the original Sunbird. I bet he was the envy of all his peers when they got togather at shearing time. Way to go Lynn, a grand slam homer on the wagon.

  7. I have to agree. The interior is unbelievable.

    How on earth are you able to get detail down to dates on a calendar the size of a postage stamp????

    You must pull all but one of the bristles out of your paintbrush and then sharpen that one to a point.
    You never cease to amaze me!

  8. I like the calendar and "Home Sweet Home" details. Now, you need to build a full-size one on the back of your pickup, to use when you and Judy get out the Polaris! Amazing details.

  9. Hi Lynn.
    Thanks for being so generous with your time. I’m sure all of the time you put into this blog could be used carving more pieces to sell. As a 45 year carpenter who is recently disabled, I a want to thank you for sharing your experience. I love working wood and carving has captivated me. I am a bit behind as I have only recently found your blog. I just finished chuck wagon cook which is my 3rd carving.

    Thanks so much!
