Finished this one up today. It's carved in basswood and finished with boiled linseed oil and satin lacquer. It turned out kind of Christ like looking ? Was trying more for a hermit look. Messed around with some different angles and lighting. Anyway, thanks for looking as always and for putting up with me

I like it, looks like it could be a hermit, but then too I have never seen a hermit. So ya it could be a hermit.

Hey Corey, Another fine job. It looks a little more like Rasputin the mad monk than a hermit to me.

Hey Corey, with pieces like the ones you are carving, what is this (putting up with me) bit. We enjoy seeing work like this.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. I have to figure out a way to get rid of the stick look. Works great for practice but when I do a finished piece and I like it's got the stick look. Tried rounding the top and bottom but that looked odd. Thinking on it.

Hey I did turn on the router tonight. Making some bases for bottle stopper displays
