Well here is my second book, "Carving a HatMan". I used a weeping willow branch for this one, but any tree with branches (LOL) could be used to create the hat peak. The inspiration for this carving was from a ceramic Santa Clause that my wife puts out every year on the fireplace mantle. His beard just sort of hung over the edge of the shelf. I found that Weeping Willow carves just as easy as Basswood and in my area is more plentiful than any other species. In this book I take the student from harvesting the HatMan blanks through a finished shelf hanger with big bushy mustash. The gallery is loaded with pleanty of examples and should be a great resource for anyone that loves to carve.
