I recently received a special order request for a skiing Santa Claus. The request came with a drawing that looks as if it was maybe on a greeting card.
2. Removing waste wood with mallet and gouge to get it down to a final rough out shape
3. Using myself to figure out a hand would look with a ski pole in it.
4. Beginning to add detail. The ski poles are bamboo skewers, with a couple of counting rings from my wife’s knitting, held on with some thread.
5. Finished carving. The skis are one piece, and held to Santa’s boots with 4 short dowels. The poles and skis have to be removable for shipping.
6. Finished painting.
