Merry Xmas

Off to surfers Paradise for a week's break before Xmas,  so would like to wish everyone a happy and safe xmas and look forward to a  great carving year in 2010.

I have finished the year off with my version of Chris Pye's greenman from the cover of his book.
My greenman is in mango, stained with brown ravens oil and finished with Organoil- Danish oil and wax.
360 mm x 300 mm.

A safe and happy Xmas and new year,
To all my family and friends,

New Blogger

Hi, I am a first time blogger - never thought I would reach this stage.
I have started blogging because of following other woodcarvers' blogs and hope that by joining the community I will be inspired and learn from other carvers.

I will start by showing a few of my carvings. Most of these have been done in a workshop setting under the watch eye of master carver Don Powell (The Image Maker ).  I have benefited from Don's guidance and expert knowledge he has offered over time.


I hope you enjoy my work and please feel free to comment.
