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.

Haha, creepy was the first word that came to mind before even reading your description. Great work though!
