My husband likes to carve green men so I ran with it. This is my green woman. She is made with poplar,bloodwood, yellowheart, cedar, walnut,cocobolo and select pine.

That is really cool. The green woman is a good concept, well done, the frame is my favorite part though, if you don’t mind my picking it apart. Very nice looking design on that, beautiful. All the leaves are excellent. The two big red ones and the ones in her hair,with the oval shape, really pull it all together. Nice!

Very nice. I like it.
I know I couldn’t do that.
Great job.

Great job; how good is your husband’s green man? a scary face? or just peering from the leaves?

i use a rigid ocillating sander, a rockwell palm sander, my favorite is my little cordless dremel stylist and now and then I sneak one of my hubbys’ carving chisels. So happy you all like her. Thanks

Terri, it’s really unusual and very nice.
