Carving Fool

Working on a hand carved from wood. I started with my dear friend Rebecca's left hand.

Which she was kind enough to lend out.
 I will be using 3/4 inch pine doweling, coarse files, and my pocket knife.

I cut individual pieces of dowel for each  section of each figure, working from the cast I rough out the shape of each finger and do more detailed carving with the knife.

They will be sanded and stained, and I will attach them together with copper brackets at each joint.
