It’s finally starting to come together after power outage and snow.Still have a way to go with the frame but can now see what need to be done. Got a feel for the bonnet and radiator cover. Lets see what the motor would look like without a cover. You can see here where the radiator will fit in the cover. And a look at the underneath.

Carving Mother Mary #3: Hand Carving a Female Face

10-09-2017 01:50 PM by Dennis Zongker | 18 comments »

It’s kind of amazing with all the small differences between a mans face compared to the female face. Carving Mary’s face was really fun for me, it took about three weeks. The customer wanted her to look young around 15 years old with a peaceful, praying look. To match up to the clay model I made several months ago was quite changeling from half scale to full scale, onto wood. Here are a few pictures showing some steps, Thank you for looking!!! ...

I am pleased with the results and I am sure that this will lead to more people experiencing this tool and the fine work that it can do. I have built in arm height adjustment over a range of ...
