Talking Rolling Pin WIP

Ok well my new vice showed up fed ex this afternoon and once it got here I never left the shop. Well after I was done just messing around with my new carving vice from lee valley I decide to make something so I started this. I was digging through my pile of rolling pins and this woodspirit just poped out at me. I have no idea where he is going, just carving him the way he says to, no patterns. The new wip rolling pin, let me know what ya think of him. As I said before I am carving him the way he tells me to, and I am no dentist but how'd I do on my firts try of carving teeth?

I will keep you all posted as he goes along.
Carl

Found a pic that shows my hair, it is dirty and tied back at this time, if anyone wanted to see it.

Hey Carl;

I like the job you done with this fella. Funny little smirk he's got on his face makes his nose perfect for this guy, Good job on the teeth for your first time, too. Keep up the good work.

Dan

I'm not sure if I'm impressed with the carving or all that hair you have (giving away my age). Never tried a rolling pin before. I expect the wood is pretty hard. The apron is a good idea. I ruin more shirts with carving. Good job on the teeth.

Great job Carl it looks great. I agree with Irishman I wish I had the hair. But you need to post a better pic of the vice and your shop lol. What type of wood is the rolling pin?

I was so tired that I forgot to mention I grow my hair and have it cut and donated to wigs for kids.

The rolling pins are hard, normaly hard maple, my mom took the pics so thats why they seem random and don't get the whole shop in them. I will be busy most of the day might get in a little carving tonight.

I wear that apron mainly when I am turning, otherwise the stream of steady chips causes alot of damage to t shirts, only time I have wrecked a shirt carving is when I was sharpening on my tormek and well I leanded over it to far, well it ripped the shirt right off. The tormek was just fine, I knew it had this kind of power and should have been paying more attention lol.

You're doing fantastic on your carving and the teeth are looking good too. It's refreshing to see your long hair! (giving away my age too!) Looks like you're having a fun time!

Carl, very nice carving.

All that wood you have hoarded and you use your mother's rolling pins!
