Commission Carvings can now be shown on this blog in that many of them were to be Christmas gifts.  The photographic journey of each carving is presented with multiple views for careful and carveful study.  Each one is an example of Whittle-Carving that uses only knives in the carving process.  The finish is a combination of boiled linseed oil and artist oil paint with the monochrome color being raw sienna and boiled linseed oil.  The polychrome coloration is various colors of artist oil paints and boiled linseed oil followed by an application of Deft, a brushing lacquer.

The photographic journey that follows depict a Civil War Soldier bust carved out of basswood hen egg; Cow Pokes carved out of a two inch tall by inch square block of basswood; CSA Soldier carved out of an inch and half square by six inch tall block of basswood and a  Crony With Cigar knife blade cover.
