This is from one piece of basswood, excluding the walnut base. It stands about 8 inches high. I started with a rough band sawn blank, leaving a lot of room for “adjustment”. I use full size tools and a mallet; they are actually easier on the arthritis. The fur is burned on hair at a time and then painted with thin layers of acrylic. I’m happy with the carving, but not the paint. That’s a little bright for me. Well, I could just “adjust” it later.
