John Wayne - Duke

I finished the carving yesterday and made the base this morning.  I think he turned out really nice and should make a nice addition to someone's collection.   I made the hat cord out of some twisted wire and then carved the knots at the end.  I made the badge out of a piece of hammered brass, silver-soldered to a post.  I'll letter "Duke" on it once it's painted.  The base is walnut.

There are a few more photos in the Gallery and I look forward to your comments.


  1. Lynn, This piece is outstanding. :-)

  2. Lynn, my apologies. I have run out of superlatives to use for comments on your creations. All I can say is it’s another winner, well done.

  3. Lynn, I'm with Northwest29 above, soooooo....superlative, superlative, superlative.....I would have bought this one with you just holding it your hand......

    Did you use your usual head 'pattern' and elongated somewhat?
