Here are a few pictures of the progress made on this carving. It shows the legs roughed out and shows how I played with the positions before gluing them in place. I also decided to switch hands with the spear. Now that I have these things in place, I can start carving all the details and decorations. I am working on a design for a possible commission that is more of a priority thatn this piece right now.

Thanks for looking!

I use hand tools and power. It all depends on what works best st the time, but I usually carve with knives and gouges and use power for sanding and cleaning up “fuzzies”. If I run into a spot where the change in grain direction ccreates difficulties, I switch to a gouge or power to get it clean. I like a certain amount of smoothness, but I hate sanding by hand.
