I’ve been working on a lot of Santas for the holidays and usually have a booth setup on December 1st hopefully to sell a few things. I wanted to have something I could carve on, as a demonstration or a small give-away for kids. I started looking at the 5 minute wizards, but decided to change it up a bit. These could be either gnomes or elves, but they’re really just a wizard with feet and a little carving on the back for arms and clothes and such. I still haven’t gotten as quick as 5 minutes, but I’m working on it! Thanks for looking!

I’ve had a few people ask for plans or tutorials on these guys, so here is a link:

H Mike. Hope you still get notices when someone posts something here. I remembered this item and thought I would check it out again. However, I see the link to the video does not work. Is the video posted somewhere else?

Keep up the good work. You sure have upped your game since this post.

It might work for you now, but it wasn’t actually a video. It is a series of pictures showing the carving process. Something must have changed, because I had to relink it to my Google account to make the pictures public again. Hope it works for you!
