Custom Palm Tools Page

I have added a new Custom Palm Tools page to The Old Stump for placing a custom order.  I have made it possible to select any handle material, ferrule patina and blade size and sweep for a truly custom tool.  Please stop by for a visit.  I would appreciate any feedback that you would be willing to share.  I would also be happy to answer any questions that you may have at .  Thanks for stopping by.

Carving the Caricature Face Part 2

Part 2 of the Carving the Caricature Face Tutorial is now available for download.  In the first part of the tutorial we worked on roughing out the head and detailing the nose.  In the second part, we work on the mouth and lower half of the face.
Follow the Tutorials Tab located at the top of this page and scroll to the bottom of that page until you find the link.  I recommend that you download the PDF file to your computer for ease of use and because viewing it on line cans cause the photos appear a bit fuzzy.  I hope that you enjoy it and find it educational.
