I love this sculpture. The expression on the face of the musician on the left is priceless. And I love the beard on the guy sitting to the right. Very clever.

I don't think I could do that with clay sculpting, yet you did this by wood carving. WOW
How long it take you?

their body composition reminds of dwarfs from fairy tales
however, the saxo and the accordion are much more reminiscent of modern culture
of course, detail and quality are of high class
i find it funny how big the accordion is in constrast to the player

Nice! You get this atmosphere of them playing in a cafe or something, all musicians have their own personality, I like that.

Too bad I can't smell it from here, I love the smell of walnut, one of my favourite woods to work with for that reason :)

You're welcome, thanks for the watch!
I don't work a lot with wood, I built a few guitars and with that I discovered walnut, it immediately was my favourite :)

Wow, the effort that must have gone into this is phenomenal! I never knew you could get such great detail just by carving. And isn't walnut one of the harder woods to work with?

Walnut? that's not exactly the easiest wood to carve, nice work on the detail. I do like how the bench-ledge they are sitting on is roughly edged, as if it a very natural formation that was broken away with these figures on it.
Did you have to add anything for the accordion? It looks like there are buttons on it that would be really hard to carve around.

I carving exclusively walnut, although it is an essence of the most hard but can give me many many more satisfactions. the pieces are unique pieces made from the block depending on how I talk, because each piece is already finished work ... enough simply to remove what's more ... as I said no compositions are unique and therefore there is nothing stuck or added later. For decorative buttons of the accordion are those golden nails that I added for aesthetic appeal and are the only things that are not part of the wood and have been added.
thank you very much for your compliments. well you are doing works very nice
crazy!! not working lathe with gloves: D

sorry for my english

Yes, Walnut is a very satisfying wood to work and finish, I was curious if you had carved any other kinds of wood when you were learning.
I like the decoration of those nails, they bring the instrument to life. Very nice.

I don't wear gloves all the time on the Lathe, just when there is a danger the tools will bounce on me too much. Don't worry about the English, if I wrote so much in a second language, I imagine I would not have done such a good job.
