I finished up the last 7 of the 21 and put them all in a library display this month for our woodcarving group. I put a picture of all 21 and some closer photos from left to right. This has been a fun project. I am working number 22 and 23 (policeman and fireman) to add to the collection. Thanks for looking.

  • I started all of these in Jan 2016 and worked on them to mid October keeping all of them in the confines of a block of wood that is 1.5” x 1.5” square x 4” tall to see how many different looks I could get from the same size wood. Thanks.

They are so adorable and detailed, nice colours too. I like that they are of various themes. Quite good stuff for collectors.

Beautiful collection. Lots of detail in the carvings. How tall are they? It’s kind of hard to tell from the photos.

Great project Mike. Shows a lot of imagination, right down to the variety of the hats.
Waiting to see the next 2. Wonderful.

My goodness….......these are terrific.
Incredible work.
Well done.

Perhaps a Dalmatian to go with the Fireman and a bank robber with a black mask (in handcuffs) to couple with the policeman???
