Thanks Ken for the kind words, I appreciate it.
Here are the final pics for today. I have tweaked the back side a little more. Introducing a couple of gouges into the carving at this point. Next I will finish the arms except for wrinkle details, set the hands into the pockets properly, rough in the shoes and finish pants all except the wrinkle detail. Separate the jacket from the shirt and set the collar in place. When all of that is done, then I will start roughing in the head and face.
The tools used so far as shown in the photo from left to right, Alan Goodman 1 3/8 straight knife, Mike Shipley 1 3/4 Detail, Alan Goodman 1 1/2 upsweep knife, 2 Cherries 10mm V-tool, Gil Drake #2 5/8" Gouge, Denny #7 - 3/4 inch.
