Just to make things interesting I carved a few sections different from how I normally do it just to see how it would come out and that to went well I thought. So here is the little guy, may be the last Santa I carve in a while but who knows.
I like that he can stand up on his own but will still put an eyelet in so he can be hung on a tree. You may notice I have already placed the pencil markings for his eyes and that is how they will stay, the direction seems to match the carving.
as always happy trails
