For this month we'll try a twist a tad outside the norm. Post some pics of a Carving in the Round that you did any time in your life! Painted, or not, finished or not....Let's see them!

This was a project I did when I had a hole in my head. Wasn't caused by the tomahawk... it wasn't done yet. Carving and shaping curly maple is a slow process. It is not like carving bass wood or pine.

Michael I posted a few photos here to fatten up the thread a bit. More in a folder in the Gallery. Black tar bear head over Nitric Acid on ball and handle.

I'll post my squirrel just to make the poll larger. It is carved out of some very old maple burl and rubbed with my oil mix.
