Tottenham Cockerel

Im not a football fan at all but i was asked to carve the club emblem for a keen Tottenham Hotspur fan

The carve stands at 40 ins tall and 14 ins wide at the ball, i have never tried to carve an exact sphere before, it was very time consuming and even now its not perfect by a long way. A bit of sanding and oiling and see what the customer thinks.

Re: Tottenham Cockerel

This is a Cock and ball story isn't it.

Nice work there.

Re: Tottenham Cockerel

Nice! I'm no footy fan myself but even I recognise that.
One of the first things I tried to carve was a ball, harder than you'd think hey!
Didn't go to town on it and it was eggy.
