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

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

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.
