Wood Carving: Finished Lady Slipper

I finished the Lady Slipper.  I super glued the parts together and Far Guy helped me peg them together with toothpicks..wood carving is highly technical.

Lady Slipper toothpicked together

I carved off the protruding tooth pegs and sanded it down one final time.

Lady Slipper is finished

Then I painted it and sealed it with Bee’s Wax. It is finished.  I am pleased with the way it turned out.  It was a good project and I learned more about woodcarving. 

Far Guy cut me a base out of Black Walnut. It is perfect! :)
