I got the toy finished last night and took some pictures this morning. You can see the completed project here. It was fun. Here is a link to the video also. Thanks for following along!

His joints look a little more limber than mine, but I never could dance, even back when the hips and knees and back didn’t ache all the time.
Fantastic Mike, I love the whimsy and detail that you put in your work.
They each look like you’ve put everything you can into them.
Well done,
Mark

Super job – excellent carving and characterisations.

I’m not sure which dancing style is being demonstrated, but it reminded me of a link I was sent that revealed the origins of Irish dancing : http://videos2view.net/irish-dance.htm

Totally packed full of ‘character’! Really great job on both the carving… and the movement. Impressive.
