Topic tags/keywords: wood carving santa basswood

This is a carving of Santa holding a bottle of Mountain Dew. Santa is 9 inches tall, carved from basswood and painted with acrylic paints.

The first thing I did was to trace the drawing I had onto the block of wood and then cut out the outline with my bandsaw.

I mounted the Santa to my carving vise with a couple of drywall screws so I could cut away the waste wood with mallet and gouges.

Once I had most of the waste wood removed, I took the carving off the vise and continued with knives and gouges to start carving in the details.

I continued to add details until I was finished.

The completed and painted Santa photos are in my Projects.
