Christmas Carvings I have done. Picture 1 is a copy of a laughing Santa head that laughs when you walk by it. This is white pine wood with a clear coat finish. Picture 2 and 3 are from Tina Toney’s carving booklet. The crooked tree is a variation of another tree I saw in a picture. Picture 5 is a blow up of a Christmas ornament we had and I added the heart to it. My wife painted the others for me. Pictures 2, 3 and 4 were sold last week just in time for Christmas.

Merry Christmas to all of you and I wish the best for all of you in the New Year.

Very nice! I’ve never carved a Santa. Maybe in 2011!

I LOVE these Erwin! I wanted to make some relief carvings such as these next year. It is one of the things on my “list”. I was thinking of some wildlife or polar animals.

You and Edith are quite an outstanding team! Man, you inspire me! These are absolutely beautiful and the talent between the two of you is simply endless! Thanks for showing us all!
