The Archer Tutorial

With the holidays over, and by the way, I hope everyone had a Merry Christamas and a Happy New Year, I'm ready to start my first tutorial.  I have chosen for the subject of our adventure the bust of an archer.  I can see him sporting a keen Robinhood hat, a forest colored tunic, and maybe a nice recurve bow strung across his back.  This should be a fun time and I hope you will follow along and participate by creating your own version of the archer.  Here's what the final head looks like.

I have uploaded the first part of our tutorial "Carving the Archer's Head", just click the link below to take you there.  The tutorial is in PDF format, so everyone should be able to open it.  The file is quite large, so please let me know if you have trouble downloading it.  Also, make sure that you download the file before trying to work from it as the photos on the hosting site seem to be kind of distorted.

  2. I haven't had a chance to go thru all of the pictures yet but this has to be one of the most complete woodcarving tutorials I have even seen.

  3. Thank you Fred and Tom for your comments. I glad that you find my little tutorial useful. You have no idea how much time and effort is involved in putting it together, but if it helps someone improve their skills, then it will have all been worth it.
