carving with Tony

 So recently Tony Harris and I had another opportunity to work on a joint carving together. Tony had recently seen some cowboys I had carved and said I know our next project should be. I carve a lot of my carvings in butternut and after our last project was in Butternut Tony made an order and told me our next would be as well.

Tony is an extremely talented carver and he sets up a carving beautifully, something I am still striving to learn and master. This is part of the joy of doing a joint carving. It allows you to see how another carver approaches a carving opposed to how you might.

As you can see he set up a wonderful carving and all I had to do was to carve in a face without messing it up and then paint him. This is such a fun project to do with a fellow carver, to see both carvers styles blend into one carving is awesome. And if I don't mind saying so myself I think Tony and my style end up making a fun carving in the end.

as always, 
"Good night and May God bless"
