  I finally finished this one up this morning.  It's been setting on my work table for about a month so I'm glad he's moved over to the paint table.  There's not much that's new about the figure.....Just another Cowboy bust.  However, I was having trouble with the neckerchief, being as it was a bust and the scarf  knot usually is on the back of the neck I realized that I carved the cloth without it.  Well, setting at the computer the other day doing my normal morning web searches I happen to glance over and see a little memory stick which had the shape of the mis ..read more

Well, it's been a while but here we are back where we started 15 years ago.  We've decided to shut down the Out West Gallery website as we can no longer give it the attention that it needs to efficiently operate.  So, you can follow future Out West adventures either here or on the new "Out West Woodcarving: Face Book page.  Here's a link to that one: https://www.facebook.com/groups/151588650372839 One thing to be aware of....Should you look back through old Blog posts and find that a lot of the associated videos are missing you might find them on our Youtube site.&nb ..read more

   This guy never seems to learn.  I can't honestly remember just how many of versions of this piece I've done over the years but there must be at least a dozen or so.  Considering this I won't go into any detail about it's construction as I'm sure there are several posts and possibly a video or two of the process.  So, I hope you continue to like him as much as I do. Comments always welcome.  ..read more

Finally, Some New Pieces!

Boy, this virus has really slowed everything down to a slow crawl.  Yesterday I finally received the nameplates for the remaining pieces that I have done since the first of the year.  So I brought them all over to the shop to take their photos and to box up a couple.  While some are already on the Out West website, hopefully I can now get the rest up.  The horse over there on the left has already left for his new home in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Thanks for stopping by.   As always, comments welcome and appreciated.   ..read more

Not much new with this one other than in bringing this figure over to the shop to get his photo taken, I noted that the peace medal didn't show up very well so it looks like he will be making a small detour to the paint table to make make those details a bit more visible.   Hope you like him.  Comments welcome as always.    ..read more

Angora Chaps - Again?

I know, I know...I've covered the subject of this Cowboy detail countless times but I just can't get enough of those chaps.  This time I at least made them a different color so some credit should be given for that! In a previous video I made the comment that if at all possible you should never lay your carving tools aside for a long period or you might pay for it once the desire to carve something returns.  This fella was a clear case of that.  It seemed like he just did not want to exit from that block of Heineke wood!  So, if you're kicked back in that recliner while yo ..read more

The Plainsman

Having recently watched the movie "The Plainsman", starring Gary Cooper, I noted what a neat buckskin shirt he was wearing.  So, borrowing that detail I came up with this carving.  I think looking at it you can see that there are many miles on this traveler of the west and he has witnessed some pretty remarkable events during the time he spent there.   I hope you like him and look forward to any comments you might have.  ..read more

It's been quite a while since I've made a Blog Post here let alone a video series so let's try and correct that.  I haven't decided on a name for this piece yet but there are 15 videos in the series on how I made it.  Here is the link to the first one which is on Youtube.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_S7u5oTLSjY As an added note....as the Vimeo video hosting service seems to be losing access to a number of my older videos, I've decided to post any future videos directly to Youtube with the hope they'll remain there without any future problems.   I hope you enjo ..read more
