New Wood Carving For The New Year

This little carving is my first work of the new year. It is inspired by the work of a company called Witco who manufactured mid-century home furnishings and decor.

Here is the first day of carving. I like to use an angle grinder to get the initial shape. And, as usual I am using reclaimed materials.

After the initial shaping I hit it with sand paper and then a blow torch. Then it gets a rub of wax.

Next are the eyes from old water ski parts and mounting on a diamond shaped plaque.

More work to be done but I’m pretty happy with it so far. Stay tuned…
