    Thanks all! It was a fun project. Spent about 46 hours total over 2 months. If I did it again, I would have added a third layer of wood to his face to give it more depth. You can't tell from straight on, but his face is completely flat.

    I'm happy how it turned out and he seemed to like it as well.

    Thanks. It was a fun project to do. One thing that I always wonder when I make something out of wood is, "where will this be in 200 years?" Will it end up in the trash heap. Will it get passed down...end up in an antique shop. I'll be interested to see where it is in 60 years

    I think it looks amazing! I'm sure this is something your son will hold on to forever, and I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes a family heirloom;) But FABULOUS work! I wish I was that artsy
