Saw the picture and not surprised this is another one of your projects. Very cute!! Other than the color (assuming paint), do you add finish as well? Again, very cute – made me smile at the end of a long week!

Gouge and knives – no power tools on this one other than using a bandsaw to make the cutout.

The painting was done to attempt to match the coloration of the customers dog. After the paint had dried, I used acrylic water-based varnish, diluted 50% with water, as a protective finish. The varnish comes from the same aisle as the acrylic paints at the hobby store.

Thanks for the added information. I love your work – moving into 3D would be a challenge for me!

Go ahead and accept the challenge! Challenges keep the brain active! I have some carvings that I do over and over – almost don’t have to think about them. Then, at other times, I have a new one – may be original or a photograph I want to make into a carving. Makes me think a bit about “hmm, how do I do this…?) Very relaxing for me!

I should explain: I was an engineer at NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC, for 17 years. After bending my brain all day at work, I would get home and, after dinner, go down to the basement to my workshop corner and carve. I could “turn off” the analytical side of my brain, and just carve. The sound of the knife or gouge slicing through the wood, the feel and smell of the wood, and at times the chance to let my mind and hands create something original, were very relaxing for me.
