I hand-carve each of my wood pieces individually using knives and gouges. These ornaments are carved half-round (flat or hollowed backs) from diagonal-cut blocks or dowels of Basswood, Butternut, Mahogany, or Spanish Cedar. They are left unsanded to maintain the carved details of the expression, the hair, and the beard, and are not stained, dyed, or painted except for black and white paint for the eyes to make the faces come alive. Since each piece is carved individually, no two will be identical. The piece you receive may differ slightly from the photos, all measurements are approximate.
Small: 4"long, 1" wide, .5" deep
Large: 4-5" long, 2" wide, 2" deep
Dowel: 5-6" long, .75-1" diameter
These pieces make fantastic small gifts, Christmas decorations, ornaments, or keychains.
