#34 Wood Carving: Friends make it fun

Ultra realistic chickadee

The following pictures are the work of good friend and fellow carver, Jeff Postma. Jeff and I have been carving together for the past two years. We have joined the same club and have sat next to each other at carving shows. He’s a good guy to hang with.

Screaming eagle, great detail







If you come hang with us you will learn to appreciate his booming laugh and zest for life. Enjoy the pictures.

I really like the work Jeff has done on his birds.  The details in each one are great.  The smile on the Cowboy Santa is eye-catching.  And speaking of eyes, Jeff and I have talked a lot about them.  We keep working at it.  The most “eye-catching” part of a face are the eyes and they prove to be some of the most difficult parts of the face to “get right.”

Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father wi ll love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.” John 14:13

  1. These are nice! It’s interesting to see how Jeff’s style differs from yours.

    • I am glad you like them. And, yes, the difference in style is always interesting. One of the things I like to see is a class project where each carver begins with the same blank. The end results are so fascinating. The creativity God has poured into each one comes out in the finished carving.
