HALF PINT MINIATURE CARVINGS are three-inch-tall figures carved in the Whittle-Carving style of the Wood Bee Carver using only knives to carve these figures.  Miniatures are commonly defined as a carving that will fit into a two-inch cube. Three-inch miniature is the classification used by the Affiliated Wood Carvers Association at the International Woodcarvers Congress competition. “Half Pint” uses the half inch scale of a half inch equals a foot which makes “Half Pint” proportionally equal to half of the average height of six feet tall humans.

A tutorial on how to carve the Civil War Soldier version of a Half Pint is available as a pdf document in the BEE HIVE section of this blog (extreme right column box) or by clicking on this hot link ~ HALF PINTS MINIATURE CARVING GUIDE.
