I was inspired to do this carving from a co-worker that for a time was down on his luck. Now that he moved on to better things, we still pass it around the shop once in awhile as a joke if someone has something dumb happen to them. This is my first figurine I’d ever done! It came out pretty good I think. As with all the other stuff I carved this out of barn wood pine, sketched it out, bandsawed out the big chunks, used my carving tools and sandpaper to do the rest. I black gessoed the whole piece, let it dry, sanded it, then applied the oil paint, letting the black show through a bit. I drilled out the hands so we could stick stuff in them, like a small tool and some schematics.
