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

Re: King Elf

Wonderful! I like the use of the nails for eyes.

Re: King Elf

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.

Re: King Elf

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.

Re: King Elf

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!
