I am trying to establish a collection of similar item from different wood highlighting interesting features in the wood. I hand-picked them from the wood splitter -sometimes almost too late! -So far i have cherry, ash, oak, and a walnut on the way.
They hang on the wall to hold things.

Very nice you can give me a hand with mine. They look a little spooky though bet you could sell one to Spielberg & he’d make a film about it! Seriously though it’s a very original idea & I’ve said it before about your work very organic & artistic 10 out of 10

That’s creative. Very interesting, good conversation pieces, and never hurts to have an extra hand at times…...............

You’ve got a handle on it! How tough are hands to carve? I’ve heard that they are the second hardest body part to get right, the first being the face.

Man! At first glance I thought you cut something off and picked it up. That hand looks real. I wish I could carve like that. Wow.

whiskey, i beg to differ; you got to think, you look at them all day long -especially if you use them to manipulate power tools-i hope!!

-check out rd’s stuff- wa-a-ay more refined than mine! -he helped me learn to not give up, even when things seem like they are falling apart -they can be glued back together!!

Very nice, Christine. You’re going to have a wonderful handful of art objects, when finished. Soon I’ll be ready to once again work on more hands, can’t wait!

...and thanks for the kind words!

This one’s really out there girl. ;) How do you carve those hands like that? I wouldn’t even try. You are coming up with some interesting ideas during this long winter… Can’t wait to see what you carve up next.
