    Meet Kristian he is a work in progress my first little folk.
    This kind of whittling is really addictive.

    is this off the head and thru the hands or are you using a drawing/photo/plan? Looks like you're off to a good start Rob

    Maybe his sinuses are just blocked up? We'll have to see what Dr. Rob prescribes.

    Well Kristian will have to be started again. Got to carried away while watching Pats game and cut too much off without looking at image i was following.
    Sadly was not paying proper attention and cut the whole ridge off that was to be part of his nose thinking (yeah should do less of that) it was in the wrong place after bandsawing block.

    I am using this book
    http://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/1565235...662628-5439413

    But will persevere and make do best i can when i pick up on it again.

    Sorry to hear Rob, don't cut your nose off over it, it's all a learning experience ...maybe you can salvage it into a little folk's child

    Do not throw it away Rob. If you go back at it some time in the future you'll find a way to change the shape of the head and make the most out of it. Remember the art of the good barber is to get side burns from a place where there is no hair, and that applies to carving.

    I can imagine you with a hipster beard, sitting on a porch in a summer afternoon, swinging in a rocker with a pipe in your mouth and a piece of Wood in your hand whittling those Little characters, with several kids around you while you tell the story related to the character...
    Best regards,
    Toni
