This critter is 18” tall, and the request for Pine. Not my favorite material to work with, but I wanted to stay within their budget. My shaper quit , just as I the basic shape down, had to work with my dremel for the balance, didn’t have time for knifework. But as in any artist , we worked with what we had they’re happy just the same.

If you have a decent sized air compressor a die grinder and a carbide burr makes fast work on wood . A few years ago I had to carve 6 wooden skull from cedar the die grinder made it fast.
