It's been a while since my last post. I seem to keep being side tracked into home duties, like lawn and garden or it is to hot or to cold for the shed.
Anyway this piece was started last October and now finished apart for the final mounting.
The Skull is White Beech finished with danish oil,white shellac and wax. 250 mm high.

A couple more to show. This girl was crafted from  Chillian Myrtle some time back and has just been
mounted. She is 350mm high and finished in arbour oil and wax.

One more, this piece stems from a friend showing me a wall mask that was made out of leather and decided it would be a nice exercise in wood. The timber is camphor laurel 300mm X 220mm finished with danish oil,shellac and wax. Camphor is ready available in my area (cheap) and carves very well

That is all for now, but I have been quite taken with some love spoons I have seen lately and would like to investigate the challenge they seem to be. Boy there are some smart carvers out there who produce these spoons.
Until next time , happy carving
