Wood Carvings by Mark Sheridan

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you carvers and art lovers who have a day job being a mom!

My Mom’s in Niagara Falls.  She’s a great mom…how many moms would have let their young son play with sharp knives!

Paul started the day off right with a hand-crafted  card and a nice gift.  It’s sunny and warm today and we’ll do our best to pamper Peggy…she more than deserves it.

On a less celebratory note, I picked up a nice piece of hard wood and cut out the base for the carving.  I think that I’m going to carve some cobblestone into the base as the roadway to match the era of the car.  The little flat section in the middle is where the nameplate will be fastened.

From this and the previous photo, you can see the difference in the colour of the carving after the urethane has been applied.  The sealing coat really brings out the colours that were fairly subtle when they were just the flat acrylic.  You can also see the addition of the “leather-wrapped” steering wheel, the hand lever and the radiator cap.  Still need to add a small hub cap on the wheels.  Lots of fun.
