Cowboy Magnet

This cowboy face was carved from a 1 1/4 inch piece of basswood. I relieved the back side to glue in a round magnet. Although a basic outline of the wood is cut out, it's carved from a solid piece of wood. Any cowboy face can be carved in this inspired Hammack design.

Cardinal Ornament

This Cardinal is carved in basswood and is 5 1/2 inch long. It is more detailed than most bird ornaments would be, but I like the size and look of it on a tree. We don't have Cardinals in my area although they would be a welcome addition if they migrated this way.

Pine Cone Ornaments

I haven't carved a pine cone in a couple of years. They are a natural part of a tree so they make a good ornament and are fun to carve. I have been carving a lot of ornaments just in time for Christmas.
