New dog

This dog is carved from a piece of wood that I picked up from the discard pile at the local Woodcraft store.  I thought it was red oak, but it might instead be padauk.  Or something else.  Whatever it is, it was a pleasure to carve.  A little on the hard side, but no match for a sharp knife.

Update 01/15: The wood is called Lyptus.  It’s a commercial (plantation-grown) hybrid of two types of Eucalyptus tree.

For the eyes, I carved a thin dowel from basswood, rounded the end, cut off a thin slice, and glued it onto the carving.
