Driftwood Santa – Wood Carving

Click photo to zoom
LOL! Well this was my first attempt at driftwood carving. A bad piece of wood, cheap carving tools and very little knowledge of carving… and this is what you get! This took a couple of evenings and I enjoyed it a lot. Hoping the old fellow (Santa) might bring better tools for future carvings at Christmas, with new tools, it might bring better results.

Thank you everyone that visited my little corner of the web this year, and thank you all that visited my shows and lessons. Have a great Holiday Season, be safe, and see you next year!

    I love Santa carvings. I was able to complete one quite a few years ago. Had great plans for more, but never did any. I like the driftwood Santas a lot.

  3. This looks like such fun. Santa seems happy to have been released from the wood and then painted too. John carved a few distelfink (?) wood faces in logs many years ago and they sit up in his office.
