Here's the back side of another Gnome that I am doing.
The front of the same Gnome. I use my pocket knife, and can carve one in about one hour. Course, then I have to paint it. So this is a little project, that while very much fun, is not one that you'd want to try to carve a bunch of to give away at a carving demonstration.
In the days to come I'll be carving some more of these Gnomes, and will try to remember to get photos at each significant step of the carving.
