It is Christmas in July on many of the TV channels and it is about time to start on some project for the Christmas season. So here are some Christmas carvings. The first Santa is carved in Basswood and is a wall hanging the smaller painted Santa’s are ornaments also basswood. I put one on an oak plaque and added a battery candle. The cypress Knee Santa’s are free standing.

Try “Treeline USA” wood carving store in Utah and on line. The place I did buy them has closed. Treeline is a good group of people and always help.

Nice job, an inspiration to me…

-- Give a someone a piece of wood, they'll make fire. Teach them to work with wood and they'll buy saws, hammers,planners, chisels, and more.

Wow, that’s a lot of carvings! I’d have to charge $1000 for a Santa from a cypress knee, given my carving speed. Nice work!
