Here's a step-by-step slide series on carving a Mark Gargac style Ol' World Santa tree ornament. This ornament is carved on the corner of a 3/4 x 3/4 x 4 inch piece of Basswood. Since I am more of a whittler, I use a knife. Carving the beard and hair is yet to be done, and will be a separate series. As will the painting.
Some captions may be added, but it really is kind of easy to follow.
