Project Information

I copied this carving from the first carving book I bought. "HOW TO CARVE FACES IN DRIFTWOOD" By Harold L. Enlow. I highly recommend this book. It helped me with my early carving. It has quite a few patterns in it. You don't have to use driftwood, use any kind of wood.
Carving material: Big Tooth Aspen, 5" x 12"
Very nice carving material.

I know that guy. He used to live in Oregon. He went by a different name back then though. I'm impressed Dick.

I'd like to thank Christopher for digging this out of the LJs catacombs.

Thanks Grumpy, & Steve,try carving sometime, I didn't start carving seriously until I was about age 40.

You can never tell what you can do until you've tried. It does take a little time, & patience though.

I used to say I wish I could carve like that,

but only wishing doesn't work.

There wasn't to much info on carving then, but now it's everywhere you look.
