Mike continues to work on his wood carving skills to prepare himself to carve a figurehead for our next boat. He made this fisherman as caricature of a good friend at work. Lance and his wife Jo Ellen loved the little guy. Jo Ellen said that it looked just like Lance, but Mike was a little generous with the hair. The pelican on the stump was made for Brenda's desk at work.
He carved this happy yet devious little wood spirit just for fun.
The sea captain was a challenge to make something really small that still had good detail. He is only 1 3/4 inches tall!
Finally, he just finished this Santa too.
Mike has a couple more caricature pieces planned for additional practice before he starts working on a larger scale carving.
