amazing “before” stage. You must be so proud of this!
I wish you well on the staining process – may it be easy, smooth and just how you envision it without “do overs”

A collar is hard enough to make out of leather but wood???? Unbelievable!!!! Might as well do a horses head to take up some of the hole. LOL

Another masterpiece! The detail in there is astonishing….the hames and the lacing would be hard to tell from the real materials – I bet even a horse couldn’t tell this one from an original….you certainly have a gift for carving such beautiful pieces of art…Bravo!

Hey, thanks you guys! This is one piece I never thought I’d get through.
John, I did not use any models but I looked at a photo on ebay and faked the hames.(there are so many types, who could call me wrong?) To tell you the truth, it was easier to carve from the inside out and I kept hanging it on the end of my jointer to pretend it was a horse! LOL. So this is one piece that is not flat at the back and the contouring will be wasted against the wall.
