    Default Man in the tree

    We've all seen trees where someone carved an old man with a beard into the tree. Can't seem to find anything doing a search and was wondering if anyone had any pattern of the sort. Thanks

    WoW, hard to believe no one even commented on this. Is Facebook taking over our forum?

    I looked through everything I had and was surprised I did not have anything that fits this. Sorry.

    First post ? I think since Joining Forum last year. So don't know if I am doing this right. (thanks for patience)
    I haven;t been able to do much carving since getting my machine as house is now going under rehab since neighbors house explosion not far from our house.
    so here goes.

    I do not have a pattern but used the following google search terms and there were some line drawings that came up that may be of use if a person could import in. Of course observing copyright protocol. face in a tree pattern to carve "old man" line art . I am constantly reading on this Forum as it is the meat and potatoes for this machine. I keep thinking it would be great somehow to incorporate the Facebook stream somehow within the Forum and have the option of posting to both, (getting both worlds in "one" place and pulling Facebook folks here..) but I am not that technically savvy. I hope this is of some help? (can't wait to set shop back up and get to putting what I have learned here in the forum to use.) Kitty

    Hi Jerry; There are Hundreds of images out there. You need your carving tools to carve the patterns in the tree. It is hard to use your CarveWright unit to do that. Send me a PM with your e-mail address. and an image you are looking for. I make my patterns for Donations.

    Jerry,

    I completely missed your first post somehow. These are fairly simple to sculpt/create for me. Do you want something similar to the picture or want something different. Also do you want the bark or just the carved face.

    Wow, this is giving me all sorts of ideas.

    Today, I am super busy but tomorrow I should have some time to build a pattern.

    Oscar

    P.S. There are a few on the forum as well. Search for "wood spirit".

    https://forum.carvewright.com/showth...ht=wood+spirit

    I even built one sometime last year. But its pretty bad. I was just learning how to sculpt (digitally) back then.

    Thanks for the input from everyone, was beginning to think everyone was out to Lunch. Oscar, just the face, I have a Maple tree in front of my house that I had to cut a very large branch off, was about 28" in diameter by the trunk. It's up about 6' from the ground, thought about putting an address sign there but the wife said she liked the idea of the old man in the tree. Something like the picture I posted, an old man with a long beard. I'm going to carve this on a piece of composite lumber (plastic wood), that way I don't have to be concerned about the weather, it does face south / southwest so it gets everything mother nature puts out. Any help would be great, thanks.
