« Part 1: " Joseph the Carpenter, Woodworker" Part 2 of Joseph the Carpenter Statue series no next part

Getting a little closer to completion of carving Joseph the Carpenter. Moving on to the feet and Base, then the arms, hands, mallet, and chisel. I thinking around two months left until completion. I thought this was going to be a little easier, it always feels that way when your getting closer to the end. Thank you for looking.

This is becoming a great journey for you Dennis. You have come so far and still have much to do but I know that you enjoy the challenge and will come out at the end of it all a happy man proud of his massive accomplishment.
I’m proud for you just from looking at pictures.
Such great work.

I can only say what everyone else is saying rolled into one comment, I’m at a loss for words on my own. Great job Dennis.

Terrific work as always Dennis. Just curious – do long projects like this tend to wear you out on the project? I know I tend to lose focus on a big project and sometimes have to step back and rebuild my enthusiasm for it. Otherwise I tend to start making mistakes. But that’s just me!

Thank you lumberjocks for the very kind complements, much needed inspiration needed.

Hi Gary, for me it’s the deadlines that is required by the customers. I manly just get very sore and tired., but I keep pushing on until I done. With carving for almost three years straight, my hands, shoulders and neck get very sore. A lot of heat and ice when I get home.

Ok – I laughed a little at the comment. I’m 58 so I get it about pain from too long in the shop. You really do great work. Hope you’re enjoying what you’re working on.
