The purpose of this blog is to document the progress of carvings I am working on.
Small Garden Troll …now completed
The small caving is finished. Now for the 2′ sculpture!
Getting there. The squirrel still needs to be textured, then some general cleanup and a couple of coats of polyurethane!
Getting the basic shape of the carving. I’ll be using all hand tools…knives and gouges.
1-7-2012 Starting a new project is always fun. Here is the design for the carving. The finished piece will be about24″ tall and carved in mahogany.
Once the design is finalized, I sketch a quick side-view. I now have a pattern to use for cutting out a 3-dimensional blank.
I am carving a smaller version of the troll, about 6 1/2″, in butternut before starting the large carving
