Wood Carving a Santa Claus
I have been inspired lately from my family that have been creating some amazing wood carvings. They are truly amazing artists and it kindled my spirit to do a couple of recent carvings. I wanted to work on a carving for the holiday and so I was watching a few YouTube Videos to find a style and get some ideas for a pattern. I came across a wood carver, who goes by the name Doug Outside that I found to be really good. Watching a couple of his videos helped me capture my vision for my carving. I will include a link to one of Doug’s videos below. It you are interested in carving, I highly recommend his videos.
I went through my box of old wood that has been beckoning to be carved and I found one that was about a foot long and an inch or so around. It seemed it would make for an interesting form of a Santa. I call it, if Eastwood was Santa Claus.
