One more snowman

I just had to do one more snowman.  This piece is carved from pear wood and stands about 3-1/4 inches tall.  The arms are random twigs from the yard and the pipe is carved from mesquite.  The pipe is slightly too large for the snowman, but I’m not sure I could carve it any smaller.  As with the last one, the rest of the decorations are chips of black walnut.

I need to be a little more careful with the glue.  I managed to smear glue around the nose and mouth, and it’s visible under bright light.  That wood glue is good stuff, but it doesn’t clean up very well.  The only way I know of to remove it would be to carve or sand it away.  Live and learn.

Off to other things, but I’ll definitely come back to the snowmen.  They’re fun.
