I brought a few books at the woodworking show at Detling earlier in the year. One of them was carving santa and elves. Thought I would have a go at one of them.

The bit I was not looking forward to was the painting, he stands 6 3/4" tall and is carved from tulip wood.

C & C Welcome

Santa 2

So cool and adorable Santa! That's great carving, like the cheek and the mustache. Great paint job as well. You are not early just prepared. Great work! Gotta make more.

Very nice work Derek, you really do seem to have this carving thing licked! Must say you are very well organised. Have you done all the Christmas shopping too! Love the paint work, well done.

cheers. Ian

He looks a little worried Derek, has he just read ALL of your Christmas list!

Sorry but you are not the earliest, we decided to make Christmas decorations to donate to le local Hospice shop, I put this in the newsletter January and got two skiing Santa's at the February meeting. I will post pics when they have been presented and given the members reponse to other appeals, I expect a shed load
