Old Vet

Early in Sept. 2009
Time to Carve: 3 hours?
Wood: Basswood

Finishing: 24 hours

Old Zek seemed to go fine... I wonder if I could do the Old Vet pattern? (I thought)

Well this proved to be a lot more challenging and not because of the facial features but I really had a time getting the hat the way I wanted it to look. I used the same "wash" method on the face and facial hair but painted the cap. The crossed swords were done using a gold paint pen.

As usual polyed the slide and attached a leather loop on the back.
