Good Old Uncle Sam was carved from basswood and painted with acrylics. A wood burner was used to create detail on the box. He is about 7” tall including the box. Part of my own private collection.

Nice carving, Bob. Good old Uncle Sam. I don’t know what we’d do without him. ;-|

Nice carving, but that soapbox gives me mixed feelings, but since it is close to Thanksgiving, I will keep my
thoughts to myself. Thank you for sharing.

He looks adorable, great expression and pretty colors. Like the burnt accents, truly a keeper!
