It’s been awhile since I posted any new carvings. I just completed these for a woodcarving show that I was in past weekend. Hope you enjoy them.

wonderful.. as I’m going through the pictures I thought “you can see the sadness in their eyes” and I started feeling sad and then I hit the group picture! So much for being sad as a chuckle took over :)

Mike another beautiful piece. How is the butternut wood to carve compared to basswood?

MikeThe butternut is easy to carve. The only thing you need to watch is that it can be a little difficult on very detailed items like the eyes because of the hard and soft grain. Just keep your tools good and sharp.
