I needed something to do while thinking of something to do. Idle hands, and all that.

Bandsawn from a slab of ash firewood. I did all the carving with hand tools, except for rounding the fingertips. I was able to roundover the thumb with a chisel, but had to bust out the dremel to do the fingertips.

He is handy to have around, but kinda creepy. Maybe it will grow on me.
