Native American Bust

Trying to get a garden in and keeping up with yard work this spring, has really cut into my carving time. But, I was finally  able to finish this carving. If you have been following the progress, you know he is carved from a 7" butternut log. He measures 16" tall. I finished him the same way I have other carvings in butternut. I applied a mixture of boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits, allowing a few days to dry. Then several coats of Deft Satin lacquer.
