A Chick's Easter egg

My wife, Michelle asked me to carve a pin of a chick hatching from an Easter egg.

The pin is relief carved from basswood. It's 3 1/2 inches tall, 2 1/2 inches wide and 3/8 inch thick. I painted it with acrylic paints and finished it with high gloss lacquer spray.

She thought it was cool. Me too.

A Pink Alligator in NJ?!?!?

I was asked if I could carve a alligator caricature based on a "squeak toy" that's sitting on my bench. So I did! It's basswood, and painted with acrylics and finished with satin poly. It is 2 3/8 inches long, 1 1/8 inches high and 2 inches wide.

She received it last week and she loved it.
