A recent completed commission for a moose. Carved out of Mahogany with walnut antlers.
The body. This was carved out of one lump of mahogany I had left over from another project I had just completed. I used a reindeer template and adapted it to make it look a bit more moose like. I wanted to make the legs more slender but to keep the whole thing strong it needed to thicker legs.
The antlers were made from one lump of walnut. I drew out a paper template as a rough guide and then drew wider around this.
The finished moose with his antlers mounted in place all shellac’d and ready to go to it’s new owner.
