This is Braided Beard. He is a Transitional Green Man and is carved out of maple. He is transitioning from a green man to a real man. The design is from a carving book that I have. I thought he was pretty cool and looked somewhat challenging. There is no finish on him right now. He is for sale so the buyer can either pay me to put a finish or they can do what is needed to suit them. This carving took around 12 hours to complete. I cut the shape out with a jig saw and a scroll saw. The tools I used are straight chisels, gouges, and a V chisel by 2 Cherries. Any and all comments are welcome positive or negative. The pictures were taken by me over an artists pad. The carving is ~4” X 9” X 3/4”.
