Carving a missing head part 4: Installation (B)

 In American Woodworker Blog

Once the dowel was made and the holes were formed, I whittled down the neck base so it will fit better into the "V" shape socket on the sculpture. I marked the surplus wood black and cut it out with a gouge.

 

 

 

Next, I put glue in the holes and on the dowels, and pressed the parts together.

 

 

Lastly I shaped the neck to nicely integrate it with the shoulder area.

Next time I will show how I finished the piece using milk paint.
