Wood Carving: Lady Slipper

During the winter we go to Wood Carving every week. It is mainly men, but sometimes a few women show up. Most of the carvers are retired, all are very talented. If you are struggling with something someone is bound to have a suggestion.

Far Guy was working on a Lady Slipper to donate to a Silent Auction for a fundraiser. Then he had surgery and didn’t think he would be able to finish in time. I helped him one afternoon and together we got er done. I have carved one before, Far Guy has carved several.

I sanded and carved a bit, Far Guy put all the pieces together and cut out the base, then I painted and applied a bees wax finish.

There are five separate pieces in the stem and leaves. The stem is an actual twig that is stripped of its bark and sanded smooth.
