When I saw Don Mertz post on woodbeecarvers.com, I had to try carving these delightful caricatures. They are out of a one inch square by one and a half inch tall. It's a good way to use scraps and practice faces. For the eyes I carved a small half circle at the brim of the hat and burned it for color. The guys have a linseed oil natural finish. I will be trying more of these with different faces. This is a way to carve a quick carving when involved in a large project and keep up your interest in carving.
