« Part 3: getting close? Part 4 of "Remember?" series no next part

I completed a few details and completed this practice piece this weekend. Overall, it turned out ok and it improved my confidence and helped jog my memory a bit …..I just need to practice more of what I was taught! So I will continue to carve some more, but I may throw a cane or a Santa in, just to keep it from becoming a grind. Thanks for looking and following along. I will post more of the finished carving under the projects section.

I loved this series. The finished product is astoundingly beautiful. I love the grain figure in the Basswood which usually hasn’t much character.

What a beauty! Following the progression has been much like watching your own child grow and mature.
You have an enviable gift, Mike.
