Very neat Mike. I can’t even imagine doing something like this, carving, painting. I cut with a saw and join together, nothing like what you’ve done here.

a small twitch of the knife makes a totally difference facial expression. I can’t even imagine doing something like that. Good job

Excellent! I would love to see a set of these with one of them having a brown beard. Then they could be made into salt and pepper shakers. Great job!!!

Nicely carved Mike. I had a raincoat and hat just like in the same color about 67 years ago.
