The Coal Miner - Part 32 - Let's Get Dirty

Part 32 - Let's Get Dirty from Out West Woodcarving Videos on Vimeo.


  1. And another masterpiece is born. It takes a lot of courage to put black (licorice) paint all over a great carving, but you did it and elevated him into a level of realism that few could achieve. He looks like he just crawled out of the shaft after a hard shift and is ready for a few adult beverages and a bath. He is different from your usual western theme, but could be from the era so not as much of a departure as say the Viking. I like to see you do something a little different, but of course the western caricatures are a joy to study as well. Hopefully, you will undertake a new project on the blog, and I know we will both enjoy it and learn from it. Can't wait to see what is next.

  2. Fantastic. Love the way you paint. You make it exciting. Ginny

  3. Takes a brave man to dirty up an already fantastic carving Lynn, but he looks even better than before, can't wait to see him finished !
    Got a request for you Lynn, now your using the HD camera could you give us some good close up shots of before and after you use your sand o flex wheel , would love to see the difference it makes close up! Thinking of making my own version .
    Looking forward to the next video, keep up the good work. Trev
