Well I started getting ready for christmas. Saw this pattern and thought it would go good with all the christmas stuff the wife puts out. She loved it when I suprised her with it. This is only my forth piece I have cut and am still learning with every try at this wonderful art form. The woods I used are bloodwood for the suit, pine for the beard, ash for the cuffs and hat, and I dont know what for the face. Its not ash but looks like it in the picture. I think it might be oak. My wife loves the way the cheeks are highlighted on it. Thanks for looking and enjoy.

Ohh.. Christmas is really coming. I’m impressed and that’s very magnificent.

Great work on this project. Good color mix on the woods and the I like the way the grain turned out as well on the beard.

You did a great job on the wood selection, like your wife said the highlighted cheeks are great and the grain on beard looks like the pine was grown for your project. great post
