This is a quality rough out for a Santa Claus figure designed by artist and wood carver Joe Land. This rough out measures 8” tall and is 4” x4” at the base. Each rough out is made in the Ozarks from best quality Linden from Minnesota and comes with a photo sheet with four views and also includes a full size pattern for the Christmas Holly motif as pictured on three sides. Joe designed this rough out as a great project to work on your skills for carving faces, curly hair and beards, and fur. It also is a great project for customizing your own holiday designs around the base. SOMETHING NEW: I revised the pattern so the same rough out can now also be carved as a Civil War Calvary Officer.
