“Scrapper” is a nick name given to a carving project that is carved into a “scrap” piece of wood. Scrapper is a way to fulfill the Old Carver’s Law: “Leave no wood un-carved.” This four faced Scrapper was carved out of a one inch tall, two inch wide and one inch deep scrap of basswood. Often a Scrapper will begin as an intended practice carving and in this case the face with bushy hair was carved on one end. On the other end a cigar chomping dude was carved. With plenty of space remaining between the two faces on each end, an Indian was carved on one side and a pirate was carved on the other side. (click on photo to enlarge)
The knife used for this carving is a homemade knife made out of blue blade spring steel with a handle made out of leopard wood.
