Default My Latest Carving Project....

Here is one I finished about a week ago. I am in the Holiday carving mode right now and this is an "Old World" Santa. Carved in Basswood, about 6 1/2 inches tall and about 2 1/2 inches around. Finished in acrylic paints, Boiled Linseed Oil and Satin Lacquer. Thanks for looking as always!

Corey my friend, some will say that I'm patronising you but I know that you won't be one of them when I say this and all your previous carvings are superb and I hope your name is carved into each one as some time in the future they will appear on the American antiques road-show and be valued highly.

Thanks all, I appreciate the kind words. Harry, I burn my name into the bottom of most pieces if there is enough space. By then the show will be called, "Look At The Piece of $H.t I Found" ha ha.

Thanks again,
Corey

Don't demean yourself, so, Corey. Your work is beautiful and 'gallery worthy'. Great Santa. I really like it.
