Default Stonewall Jackson

Started this fella about 9 this morning and finished him up around 4. My wrist aches!! He stands about 15" with the base so he's quite an impressive piece. Kind of elongated but I think it only adds to the figure. Should really be a looker once he's painted. As always your comments are welcome. More photos on the blog.

Seven hours? Wow! Great carving, Lynn! Brass buttons are a nice touch.

Very cool, I love the long face and the squinty eyes, can't wait to see it in paint.

Yeh, really...seven hours?
It would take me seven hours to figure out where to start with something like that!
I really like that!
Great job!

Lynn,
Another great carving. Thanks so much for sharing and can't wait to see it finished. I now understand why you don't do "5 minute" carvings, by the time you would get your knife picked up you would have to put it right back down.

Safe carving and God Bless,

Mark

He's terrific Lynn. His face kind of looks like Gandalf from the Lord of the Ring Movies. Should be fantastic when he gets his coat of paint.
