Carving something out of a block of wood has always been amazing to me. I tried my hand with the shoe challenge last year and did alright. Now mpounders put together a 3 step tutorial blog on how to carve these little santas with big teeth and no eyes. The tutorial was great and I am pleased with the results. I’ll be giving these to my family after thanksgiving to hang on our tree. The wood is basswood and I used a utility knife like he suggested for the bulk of the carving. I used a dremel to add some of the details. Thanks again.

This was a great three part tutorial blog you referred to. I just recieved a 20 pound box of bass wood from Rockler (currently on sale) and will be giving this carving thing a go. Your Santa’s turned out GREAT…......

They turned out great! You carved them out pretty quick too; I think the first ornament I ever carved took several weeks. I like all the different expressions you came up with too.

These are nice looking and you did a good job on them.

Thanks guys!! It took me about an hour plus to get the bulk of the carving done on each one and then I lost track of time for the detail work and painting. I gave them to my kids last night and they were a hit. This is definitely more fun than whittling a point onto a stick!
