Work in Progress

a friend told me half the fun of coming over was that she got to see things as they progressed, so I thought I’d share some of the things I’m working on,.. this will be a mermaid someday,..

the main body is a piece of walnut burl, the tail(which you really cant see much of) is a piece of tiger oak,there will be some shell pieces added, (you can see the abalone behind her), the hair (which will be added later) will be a white wood called pipe stem wood , each piece is preshaped then glued with an epoxy then the finish carving happens, for a scale reference, she’s leaning against a regular film canister,..
