George Proudfeather’s Pedestal Added
George now is secure on his pedestal. The base is made from mahogany with a walnut stain and satin urethane coat.
I positioned the rectangular upright portion of the base just back from the centre of the horizontal portion as I just thought that it would look a bit more unique that way. Now I’m looking at it and wondering what I might carve to lay on the base just in front of him…a feather, a tomahawk, etc. I’ll have to give that some thought…leave a suggestion if you have something in mind.
Although I’ve never placed a nameplate/plaque on any of my carvings before, this one might lend itself to that. I know that Lynne Doughty applies a nameplate to his carvings and that always looks extremely nice. I’ll have to shop around and see what’s available.
