15” tall, 6 1/2” wide and 2” thick
I carved this mountain man in a Pine knot using rotary hand tools- more specifically, a Foredom with a series of steel burs. The Foredom is similar to the tools of a dentist. There is a hanging motor with a flexible shaft that attaches to a hand piece. It is all speed controlled with a foot pedal. There are tons of different cutters that can be inserted into the hand piece for different applications and results.
A great day to me is having the stereo blasting WNKU, sitting on my duff carving wood spirits.
I use a little bit of oil paint to add extra contrast to the knots- just a wee bit…a dollop, smidgen or tad.
