Sioux Chief

Sometime between 2012 and 2015

Time to carve: 3.5 hours
Finishing: 2 hour

Another slide carved during Merit Badge Uninversity at UMASS Amherst I think a couple of years ago. I had a couple of adults ask me about what I was carving while I was chipping away, well here's the result. Carved from red maple with my trusty knife and a lot of sharping using a home brew recycled computer hard drive sharpener system. A couple of coats of poly finish this off.
There is something about the non-descript face and the almost weathered look that appeals to me.
