Almost There

This is just a quick post to show the progress on my latest carving.  I call it “Practical Jokes.”  When the piece is all assembled, you will get the meaning behind the title I hope.  He’s carved, burned, sanded and ready for some paint. 

Tip from the Stump:  always take a lot of photographs of your carvings during the whole carving process.  The pictures of your progress will be a valuable reference tool and help to jog your memory when you are trying to recreate a process on a future carving.  The pictures of your final projects will allow you to remember your carvings and the journeys they took you on long after they have been sold or given away.  Snap away!!!
The scenery is finished and ready for a finish coat of varnish and for Sir Robert to be attached to it. 

This has been a fun piece and assuming that I don’t really botch up the paint job, he should look really cool.  I hope to have him finished by this weekend, so check back soon for the final unveiling.  More pics are posted on The Carving Bench page.
