  • Small statuette

    Ok, so i'm not a complete beginner, but i've only really used pine.

    I'm looking to carve a christmas gift for my mom in the form of a statuette. in a deep brown shade. I have no idea what hard woods of 'hazlenut-shell' color will be suitable.

    any advice on which woods and at what price they are found would be much appreciated. If you could also say how easily available they are i would be indebted to you.

    [glow=red,2,300][shadow=red,left,300][move]THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! [/move][/shadow][/glow]

    Forgot to add, this statuette will be about half a meter tall and 20-30 centimeteres across in a swan-like shape.

      Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

      Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
