Some more of our kitty Cat herd.

My wife loves cats, but we don’t have any cats anymore, so when she seen this pattern in an issue of the British, Woodcarving magazine.

She said ”I want one of those”

It ended up with what you may call a herd of these little critters, & we don’t need a sandbox for them either. LOL

They’re 8 1/2 ” long.

The profiles were cut with the bandsaw.

Most of the carving, if you want to call it carving was done with my flexible shaft tool with a course 1/2” sanding drum.

The finer details were done with chisels. & the final finish sanding was done by hand.

Man you had to have had some sharp knives to be cutting that ole red oak. But again with the cats, you say your wife likes em huh? Good thing, I’d be inclined to find another friend. mike

Thanks, I haven’t made any, I usually don’t repeat many carvings. I just happened to run a streak of these.

I really want to carve this one for my daughter. Do you know where I can get a copy of the plan so I can bandsaw out the basics?
