Project Information

It's been awhile since I've busted out the carving knife. I had some grandiose ideas of woodcarving on the beach. So I cut out the blank and packed the dremel and a couple of blades and took the carving 'kit' to Florida on our family vacation! I was quickly sanctioned to using the dremel only on the patio of the condo and carving on the beach surcombed to carving in airconditioning! It was a beautiful vacation and I was able to pretty much complete this carving of one of Enlows expression carving characters. Oh, to be on vacation again! Can't Wait!

These caricature carvings are awesome. I saw one done as a howto in a magazine once. They look very gratifying to do. This one is really cool!

It doesn't look like he enjoyed the beach as much as you did. He must prefer the mountains. LOL. Nice carving.

He looks great, How big is he? It is hard to tell, I would guess 8" or 10 " hight?

That poor guy looked like he had a bad time at the beach? Maybe he sun burned some sensitive parts <girn>

I never tried carving with the dremel. It seems like cheating :) but when I think about… I am going to try my dremel today and see how I feel about it.

For this project I used basswood and it is about 3" - 4" high. I used the dremel for roughing out the piece. It definitely keeps the project moving forward. Cheating? ;-) Maybe… but no more than using a band saw or scroll saw in my opinion. I would like to learn to use the dremel for finer detail work in the future.

Thanks for all the great feedback!
