I carved these faces so the hat would form a background for the face. The basswood is 2 by 2 3/4 inches and 1/2 inch thick. I draw the hat and the outside of the face. Then I carve the hat to the depth I want. Now I can carve the face and finish the hat. I use these for pins or magnets. I also use the eye end of a fish hook as a hanger and pin them to the cloth between the cabinets in my camper.
