« Part 1: Carving "Green Man" Beginning Steps. Part 2 of The Adventures of Carving, "Green Man" series Part 3: Carving "Green Man" Last Steps. »

Just a little over half way done. These 13 pictures are the next stages on how to carve “Green Man” He is a little scary. I like him that way. I makes it fun for Halloween.

The next steps will include carving the leaves and final shaping up the face, and under cutting the leaves. Thank you for looking, and happy woodworking to you.

Dennis ~ I don’t think he looks ‘scary’ at all. Maybe villainous and… certainly mischievous. But I gotta tell you that this is turning out so well. Some of us might be happy to stop right there and say done but looking at your past projects it is easy to get a sense of how great this is going to be. Thanks for sharing the process.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)
