"Carving The Little Guy"

I carved this fellow from the book "Carving The Little Guys" by Keith Randich. The book has good step by step instruction with plenty of photographs. He is 1" x 1" x 2" high basswood painted with acrylics.
I recommend this book if you are a beginner woodcarver and want to try smaller carvings. They are fun to carve even for the more experienced carver.

Smiling Apple

I apologize for not posting for such a long time. I have had a lot of health issues and carving was put on hold.
This Smiling Apple was done from Russell Scott's tutorial. He has some excellent videos on doing faces on his blog.

Here is a link to his blog.

Happy Canada Day to all Canadians.
I carved the keychain and pin for Canada Day.
