This is the Grumpy Guy’s Wine Bar accessory; This grumpy face guy is carved from basswood, painted with acrylics, and finished with a dark antiquing wax with a cork to fit most wine bottles. It has a turned mahogany base with a semigloss polyurethane finish and a felt bottom. It’s just under 7inches tall, 3 inches wide, and is signed and dated. Just another day at the office.

Thanks to all for the comments. Sorry I can’t respond, but something’s wierd with my page where the link to the ‘comments’ doesn’t work. I’m not being antisocial. It’s a broken link. Not sure how to fix it….Justin

I am in awe by the details of this wood carved project that’s flawlessly executed.
