Due to the length of this one I had to break it in into two parts.

With this part we finish up the body and move on to the head. I’ll try and devote a lot of time on this part as I know a lot of you have ask for this.

I watched The Mountain Men with Charelton Heston and Brian Keith yesterday so been thinking of doing a Mountain Man. Been a while since I did one of those. Still have the Indian woman and child to finish though and there is another large Indian bust and a Buffalo Soldier setting partially finished on the workbench so it will be a while before I can start that.
Lots of pictures in the Gallery and your comments are welcome and appreciated.

Not much new here...I used small domed tacks for the buttons and a thinner wire than normal for the glasses. The feather is held to the hat with a metal band. Hope you like him and your comments are welcome as always.

Here’s the first segment on carving the woman’s body. I show you how to cut a few corners in sawing out the blank. Warning! Don’t attempt this if you’re not that confident with your band saw skills.
One thing you might be noticing with almost each video I now post…..I’m not giving you as much instruction as the earlier projects. I’m not doing this to save me time but hoping that with the carving experience from those earlier projects you are getting confident enough to know what to do. When I see areas that might need a little broader explanation I’ll go into those with more depth. Hope that’s okay. I ask for your comments with this part so I can aim the camera at those areas.
