Just to show that I can carve something besides Santa Claus, I carved this back in 2006. Carved from a scrap of walnut, finished with clear water-based varnish. Stands 3.5 inches tall.

HHHH’’’’’’’MMMMMMM!

Very well done!

My question is; Does it still look like you or has “Father Time” modified you enough that it is unrecognizable?

Hats off to you! It is never an easy feat to carve a facial expression and to be able to do it so intricately is simply amazing!
