  • 3d toy of young girl

    After making hundreds of toy angels I decided to try to develop one of a young girl. Our club gives toys away to local hospitals and they asked us to make something for little girls to just hold on do during their visit. Five inches tall made of a fir 2x4. First photo shows what it looks like right out of the saw. You can see the feet need work as does the pony tail hair and the head. I adjust the shape using a "Mastercarver" rotary tool. The pattern is of my own design. You are welcome to use it.

    Doing the extra carving on the 3D cut really makes this piece. I did take a copy of your design, thank you.
    Now just a bit of wood burning and color.

    Which Master carver tool do you have?

      A pony tail suggestion, from someone who has put thousands of ponytails in my daughter's hair, try to put a little curve in the bottom to make it look more natural. I do like the pattern. I would hate to see what I would end up with if I tried to make a 3D pattern. LOL

        I bought my Mastercarver years ago . MIne has the bench mounted speed control and motor. I bought two extra handpieces with it. One that has a drill type chuck in it and will take up to 1/4" bits. The other extra one I bought is the carving handpiece. It is like a mini jack hammer with gouges to carve wood. All work well but I now, seldom use the carving handpiece.

          So it is a flex shaft, similar to the Fordom tools.

            Yes and Fordom and Wecheer bits will also fit the mastercarver .
