I just finished painting this little guy and now has a home on our Christmas Tree.

Helene and I wish everyone a

Merry Christmas!

Carving detail:

This carving is out of native Indiana Basswood and is a fun project with more detail than I originally thought.  It comes from the pages of WoodCarving Illustrated, the Holiday 2013 issue #65.

The project calls to use a woodburner for the fur texture, but I just used a small v-tool, but other than that, I loosely followed Leah Goddard’s guide.  I recommend this project and will carve a few more for gifts at some point.

Happy carving,
