Christmas Carvings 2016

Now that all the Christmas gifts have been handed out, I want to share the rest of my carvings from this year. The two Santa's are from a pattern by Susan Hendrix, in Wood Carving Illustrated magazine. When I cut them out on the bandsaw, I left the base on one. The other I mounted on the base after I carved him.
The star ornaments' were based on the glass blown ornaments of Christmas' long ago.

Christmas Craft Fair 2016

Had a good day yesterday at the first Christmas Craft Fair in Kearney Missouri. We made some new friends and sold some carvings. Made our booth money back and a good profit. Thanks to the wife for my new fancy table cover. I'm pretty sure she bought a birdhouse from Santa Claus. I have one more show before Christmas. I'll be at Martha Lafite in Liberty Missouri on December 17 & 18.
