The Archer Bust Tutorial - Carving the Quiver

The great saga of Carving the Archer's Bust continues with another fascinating episode.  In this next segment, we will carve the Archer's quiver, attach it to the torso, carve a carrying strap on the torso, and make some really cool looking arrows.  Here's a peek of what we will accomplish in this tutorial:

He's really starting to look like an archer now.  Click on the link below to download part four of the Carving the Archer's Bust tutorial.

Carving the Archer's Quiver

I apologize that this is taking so long, but there is a lot of work involved in creating these tutorials.  I am trying to show every little step so that no one gets lost.  I hope that everyone following along is enjoying our little journey together.  I have had some really positive feedback from several of you and I am very pleased that you are making strides and improving your skills.  Let me know if you run into any trouble along the way and I'll clarify any points of confusion.

I foresee about three more parts for this tutorial.  The next part will cover making the bow, followed by making a nice base for the carving, and finally we will paint this piece and get it ready for display.

I hope that in the end, when you have finished your version of the Archer, that you will send me some pictures showing me your pieces.  I would love to see what you come up with.  It would also be fun to post pictures of every one's creations here on The Old Stump for all to see, with your permission of course.

Now get that tutorial downloaded and get making chips.
