Craig,

As you go you will find how much room to leave in between your lines to allow you to carve. What works in drawings rarely works in a carving unless you plan ahead for your cuts. I try to do as little drawing as possible and choose to work the piece out of the wood - but that might not work for you. Try starting with a good idea of what you want him to look like, a good picture on paper, and then start working him out of the wood with guidelines on the log as you need him. Get a center line to help with your symmetry and other lines to line up the eyes and other features.

-Gman

Hey Gman, I ordered the MC175 set from mountain heritage that you recommended last Friday. I called yesterday to check on the status and they were out of stock and Flexcut takes the whole week off for the 4th every year, so I have to wait a little longer. I didn't give up!! I really can't wait to get started!!!

Hey Craig, nice start. Keep thinking and trying to work it out. You'll be fine. Cut in deeper and start to think of the carving as a series of layers. The more layers and transitions to layers, the more interesting and appealing it will be. Think and experiment - then repeat!

-G

Had a couple of minutes after work so I started to go a little deeper on the left side and worked on the legs! Gman are the flexcuts going to be easier to use then the bench chisels I'm using now???
