I’m trying to replenish my stock of inexpensive carvings sold and used as gifts for Christmas, so I am trying to do one or more Santas per week. I usually spend 4-5 hours on each, but it really depends on what I am trying. There isn’t a lot of money in it for me, but I enjoy doing them and people like getting them as gifts or as gifts for others. I get to practice and try out different things with these guys.

Mike, It looks great. Your carving is so clean and crisp looking. I like the eyes a lot – are they painted?

You know, you ought to think about giving a tutorial on carving eyes. I think carving eyes gives a lot of beginners trouble. I know they give me trouble.
