Whittlin The Civil War Soldier Part 2

videoHere is the "quick & dirty" Part 2 of whittlin the Civil War Soldier. If you whittled your soldier out of wood that is larger than 1/2 x 1/2 inches, you'll want to cut away more of the body so that the arms have more dimension.
The next Civil War Soldier will be done with the arms separate, then added to the body. This technique saves time and wood; while letting you create more action.
