Whittling fun. I started with a 1/2” x 5/8” x 4” piece of wood and whittling most of this little guy with just a knife. He is 2” tall.

For a small carving this little guy has a lot of very nice details. Well done.

Love the tiny detailed work that you do, and this is an excellent example. You mentioned “just a knife”, and I’m wondering if it is the small one that you made from a scraper?

Druid – I did use that knife from the scraper blade. It is very sharp and I can do a lot with the point of the knife. Thanks.

A very nice little whitle I must say!
great to have eyes capable of doing such fine work!
I would have so many Maggy lamps and magnifiying glasses just to see what I was doing there would be no ability to hold any tools!!

Cool. Reminds me of Brooks. At least I think that’s the name. The old librarian in “The Shawshank Redemption”.

Great face. Not many can do faces that well. Got any bigger tools? (chuckle, chuckle)
