King Elf was one of a series of elves I carved after taking a workshop in Colorado taught by Mark Gargac.

Hi Ken Thank you

Hi selectedgrub Thank you too!

Hi Doug Thank you, too! I can see why you thought the eyes were nails. They are actually hand carved, wood burned and a varnish applied to them. The nails in the elf's crown are antique brass brads.

Well, they are perfect and add fire to his eyes.

Luv2Shoot Thank you for your nice compliment much appreciated. I need to carve more of these whimsy elves. The basic pattern/video is by Mark Gargac a wonderful carver and teacher.

I have always admired this kind of carving.
I tried several but discovered it is not my forte.

You seem to have a touch for this

well done!
