Normally I spend most of my time in the toy making section but I like to do some Turning, Scroll work and Carving mainly it is toy making
I brought a few books at the woodworking show at Detling here in England earlier in the year. One of them was “Carving Wooden Santas Elves and Gnomes”.
Thought I would have a go at one of them.
The bit I was not looking forward to was the painting, he stands 6 3/4” tall and is carved from tulip wood.
He looks a bit shiny as I had just sprayed him in the photo’s.
This is a first of this type of subject but not my first carving.
