Clearing the Deck

I'm still working to clear off the partially finished carvings setting on my work table.  One of the best way to do it is to add a bust body to one of the many heads I've done.  I think I've mentioned before that on our Tuesday carvers gathering at the Senior Center in town I can usually manage to pretty well rough out a new head in the two hours we're there.  So, these things build up after a while.  

While Bottle Stoppers are a good way to mount them I think this works out much better by making a something fairly simple turn out to be a really nice presentation.  The base is walnut and it, with the figure, stands at 12".  

Now to paint it!   Comments welcome as always.

  1. You have the thinnest brims on your hats that I’ve ever seen! This is kind of a Hoss Cartwright hat. I like it!
