This Sea Captain rough out is for the project that was featured in Woodcarving Illustrated Magazine’s issue 79 – Summer 2017.
The Sea Captain Rough out measures 14.5″ tall, 5.75″ wide and 3.25″ deep. Included to with the rough out are:
- two small blocks of wood to carve the smaller dock posts from.
- four pages of full size color reference photos.
- a list of suggested tools
- instructions on fitting the dock posts together.
Each rough-out is made from high quality northern basswood, but may still contain minor flaws such as pin knots or brown streaks. Due to the size of this rough-out, it is not uncommon for there to be a small amount of bark on the front corners of the base of the carving.
Watch Dylan’s time lapse video of him roughing out the Sea Captain on youtube. Of course you can save yourself all that work by purchasing the rough out.
