Some older projects I thought I’d share. The Indian head I carved per instructions from a book by Jeff Phares. The chip carved owl by the book “chip carving patterns” by Wayne Barton. (I can’t be original all the time). We’ve all seen the ball cage n chain thing. The other heads I came up with on my own.

Wow…very impressive carving skills! Especially love the first pic of the Indian head…you captured alot of character in his face. I’m a relief carver, so 3D carvings always amaze me. Tried it once, and found it SO much harder then I expected, so I can respect it that much more :)

I know from my unsuccessful carving career that having a pattern is one thing. Doing a successful carving is something quite different. This indian carving is terrific Jim as are all the others.
