    “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.
