I do not know if this Hillman is the same as our American Hillbilly, but he is a very happy fellow. Thank youfor showing how you carve from the rough cuts to the finished carving. I searched Google and could notfind a reference that would explain the shovel and the fancy (container/lantern?) that he is carrying. Do these have a special significance, as a gallon jug of moonshilne would have in the hand of our hillbillly? Whatever the reason, thank you for sharing this happy fellow during this Christmas season.

I have been doing my holiday carving and really enjoying. Just posted my results on this site a couple weeks ago. I love your figure shown above. Great job. What other wood have you carved with besides basswood?

Thanks for your response on other wood types. I have used “Tupilo” that carves very nice. Seems to be lighter than bass wood. The only downside it seems to me is the wood grain direction. You think that the grain runs long ways, but sometimes it seems like it might run other ways? At least it becomes hard to carve.
