I wrote an article about these in the Woodcarving Illustrated Magazine Holiday Edition 2010 (Issue 53).  The snowmen are about 5.5 inches tall, basswood, painted with acrylics.  The first photo are two I recently carved as a special order.  The next photo is one I carve several of every year (Naval Academy Midshipman), and the last photo is one I did for my granddaughter (now 6) a couple of years ago.  Her older brother has the original that was in the WCI article, and she wanted a “girl snowman” for herself…

Each of these (1 base, 2 torsos, 1 head, 2 hats) takes about an hour and a half to carve. If anyone wants to carve one of these, send me a private message and I’ll put together a PDF file of the dimensions and steps.

Nice back story Claude.

I’m sure they were pleased, and it will be something that goes on as long as family’s have Christmas.
