Woodcarving

This is Far Guys latest woodcarving.  It has been quite a project and is keeping him busy.  He is working on the Black Walnut base now and then the leaves are next. 


Each petal is carved individually out of Basswood and then they are fit together...like a big old puzzle,   I have absolutely no interest in carving flowers...but Far Guy loves to design them...and carve them...must be the challenge!

The join on these three huge flowers was very interesting.

We have MANY Doctors appointments this week...not much will be accomplished on the craft projects this week other than those I can take along in a bag.

  1. Ufff. I dislike appointments all week! Especially during this time of the year. I'd like to avoid that weather at all costs. Watch out for those sick people hanging out in the waiting rooms!
