This csrving was a surprise from beginning to end. Now I live a very low key life and am not a church goer. One day a crazy thought came over me and I decided to carve a religous figure. I had a very straight and clear cut off piece of pine with no place to rest. It was like a blank sheet of paper to a writer, no sketch no nothing to start with. Just started carving and this is where the chisels took me. I was flabbergasted. A father in law of my daughter loved it and so that’s where it hangs. I still get a surprise everytime I see it. Maybe I shouldn’t have posted it, but here it is anyway.

The finish used wad pure Tung Oil.

Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate them. I think belonging to the LJ Group has been one of the best opportunities to explore & enjoy the woodworking craft.

Very impressive! I’m certain the recipient is as awed as you are.
