Here are a couple of little guys that I carved this week. The main body of the man is 2” tall. I came across a tutorial by Lynn Doughty that showed adding a cowboy hat in 2 extra pieces, so I tried it out and pretty happy with my first cowboy hat. Thanks.

Neat little guys! They look really nice!
What wood are they carved out of?

Thanks for the comments.

Robert – They are carved out of basswood and painted with acrylic paints.

I’ve always liked caricatures; I just can’t do them! I can’t see the image in the wood before carving it, and if I can’t see it, I cant carve it! You’re lucky and did a very good job!
