Kansas City Show 2017

I had a good time at the show, even though I was fighting a cold. I received two 'Best of Group' awards and a 'Second Best of Group' award. Also sold a carving. This is the first year our club had a table at the show. Here are a few photos.

I decided to try something different with this carving. I carve a lot of Native Americans, mountain men, wood spirits, gnomes and Santas, but I have never carved a viking. I started by doing a rough sketch and sizing it to the block of catalpa I have on hand. I apply the pattern on the wood with spray adhesive, and cut out with the band saw. Now it's time to start removing wood.
