Snowman Ornament

Here is simple ornament that is fun to carve. I start by drawing a snowman head with a few different hats. I then transfer the pattern to a  1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 4" basswood block. By placing two heads on the block, it is easier to hold on to while carving.

Round off  the heads and rough in the hats.

Continue rounding the carving, there are no corners on a snowman.
 Carve in the details
Looking pretty good.
  I used a scroll saw to separate the two heads. Ready for paint.
