I carved this from a Harold Enlow rough out and I think it is a good example of his talent and sense of humor. I decided to carve the seat with some fancy buttons and details, trying to give it an upholstered appearance. This is 14”hx14”wx8”d, carved from basswood with dowels attaching the legs to the seat. Painted with acrylic washes and finished with satin polyurethane. Thanks for looking!

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Amazing job. But it does make one wonder where you’ve stashed the rest of the body!
