I carved this little fella’ in a bagpipe chanter. This is a commissioned carving from Lindsey’s bagpipes. I like knowing that someone will be carrying this guy around with them everywhere they take their pipes.
I made this carving in a piece of Ebony. The wood carves very well with a sharp bur and holds detail wonderfully. This was a bit challenging as I was only given around 3/4” depth to fit in the face before hitting the hollow center- pshew, barely made it :) I decided to go ahead and paint this face because the detail would have been lost on this dark, dark wood when a finish was applied. Diggin’ it :) Have a good one, all!
