This is the figurehead of the 'Confederacy'... yes, that one if you know what I mean. Carved from European Boxwood, mostly with rotary tools. I also attach a few pictures about its making - if explanation is needed, I will add it later.

Thanks, Brian!
Moxis - I am using mostly the Micromotor with diverse milling bits - see details in the other thread.

Looks great! Maybe gonna try someting small to help understand the steps to combine the front and side drawing with carving. Following a guy on YouTube who makes small and big carvings with only electrical tools.

Sorry, guys, I must have had a senior moment. This is obviously not the Constitution's figure head, but that of the Confederacy. My apologies about the confusion.

I am the proud recipient of the above figure head. I asked Janos if he would do the carving for me and to my surprise he said yes. (He also did the angel for me). I know I will never meet him but I wanted to express my gratitude to him in this forum. He is certainly a very talented person. The carving made it's way from Australia to Canada unscathed. Thank you Janos.
