Hand carved and painted character

16 June 2016
It all started with a piece of Herefordshire apple wood, an axe and a carving knife, the rest was left to imagination. The Racso came into being with each carful swing of the axe, it's form slowly began to emerge from the dry and well seasoned apple wood log. Below is a picture of Rob putting the finishing touches to the creature, along with four images of the finished item.
