Default Old Man with Bag

This is from a Pete LeClair pattern in the CCA "Train Book" with a few modifications. I changed his face and hat and decided he looked old so I gave him white hair. My apologies to Mr. LeClair. He's 5 1/2 inches tall. Hope you enjoy him.

Beautiful job Joe. I don't think apologies are necessary, you took an idea and made it your own. I think that's what makes it an outstanding carving.

MA, burning and carving is not the same as playing with matches and knives.
