Default Cypress knee Santa

Haven't posted in a long time so here is a 30 inch Cypress knee Santa, all power carved. Worm holes all over it were intentionally saved to give it character.

Looking good.

I tried to do a Cypres Knee Santa once but gave up. I found the wood to be to resistive to the knife. Yours came out quite well.

btw: Good decision on leaving the worm holes

Nice job Doug! @Ken, cutting tools must be ULTRA sharp. I have to strop after nearly every cut, or the wood crumples.
