Day 2 of the March 2017 RWR I spent in Chris Hammack’s class. He had roughouts of his “Professional” series with him and I chose the Lobster Fisherman. I started thinking about it, and decided to make him a crawfish fisherman instead. After I carved away the hat and the slicker, I realized that a proper-sized crawfish would only be about 1/4 inch long. Then I got inspired. The first photo is Chris’ “go by” and rough out. Carved from basswood, about 5 inches tall, including base.

A fine project.

I like the 54 pickup too!

Is that yours? This was taken at a car show apparently.

No, the truck is not mine. Found it on the internet and thought it looked like something a country boy might drive to town in to see his sweetie….
