Lots of Carving!

   Posted by: admin    in Commission Nutcracker, Figural Nutcracker, Wood Carving

Brandon has been a busy guy!   He  has begun carving the commission mountain climber nutcracker.  It is coming along nicely.

He has also been making some stands for a collector.  The collector noticed in a photo on the blog the tree stump stand that Brandon made for our gnome nutcracker and ordered some.  The workshop kind of looks like some beavers have gotten in there!  :-)

A Quick Update

   Posted by: admin    in Figural Nutcracker, Wood Carving

The design for the commissioned Mountain Climber Nutcracker has been finalized.   Now it’s time to begin carving!

The final design has changed slightly.  The coat is now closed and ropes added and the sunglasses have been made smaller.  It is hard to see the detail in the clay but the wood will show the detail much better.

Check back to see the project progress.
