Home. 
You can see that for simplicity I glued the paper with the drawing on the workpiece. The first thing to do for landing slot

Then I switched on the machine circular saw, so faster

Unfortunately, when there was work on the head of a lion I ran out of batteries in the camera, so more photos with a ready thread head.
You can see that part of the excess from the last attempt is cut and inserted into the groove on the blank bar. Now until the end of the thread it will be on it.
IMG_4122.jpg
If you look closely, you can see that the color of the wood has changed a bit , especially on the head figurines
This is because of the oil , and which is impregnated with a lion's head . I put a brush oil on the thread. Tung oil is absorbed quickly and makes the tree a little different . Now it is pricked as before and is very convenient for carving even the smallest elements. Now you know a little secret.

Now is the time to work on a shield with lilies . First I 'll show pictures, and then open another little secret.
 
So the lion looked at the beginning of work on the shield
IMG_4159.jpg
So after
IMG_4166.jpg
IMG_4167.jpg
So in fact what happened in the end is not quite what is photographed at the beginning . The shield with lilies actually different. Note that in the first picture , this part is not as convex  as in the end.
I did not succeed. I was frustrated. I cut below and try again. Again bad. So shield became quite flat and on it was impossible to fix. What to do? Redo it all over again? This is so offensively . I decided to try to fix everything. But first, another blank tree I began to cut again inside with lilies. I liked it, now you need to carefully move it to the figure. 
 
That's why I made the first shot. And the line is not there by accident and not for beauty. With her help I was able to print this part of the correct scale on cardboard. Then tried to cut the exact shape, and what was inside the wreath. It was laborious, it was necessary to try a lot. Several times had to start anew. And finally, everything worked, I cut out cardboard replica of what I wanted. 
 
I now had a pattern. I have attached it to a new piece with lilies and transferred all nyuansy.Ostalos all neatly cut and paste the new piece into place. So the whole figure was saved.

well that's all. in the end I want to open another one of my secret. Photographing process work is also very useful. Often you can see that just not visible. Pictures help to see their mistakes. When working, don't remember how it looked figurine of a week ago. And if you suddenly have to start all over again (this happens), then you can better understand where to make changes and do not make a mistake опять.У photos have another benefit. When it was all over and the thread goes to the customer on the memory remains of those pictures.

Hi Janos .
The tool I have the most common . I use like this . The smallest self-made cutters . They resharpen of sewing needles . They became good shape and very fit. They are very easy to alter.
IMG_4395.jpg
IMG_4397.jpg
Electric carving tool when not use.  I tried it with carving figurines lady for " Druid ". Even good at. But it is very dangerous. You can spoil , so then they stopped working. I do not know how to properly called in English , in Russian it is called BOR . like this will be clearer :
IMG_4233.jpg
They tried. Now sometimes use them too , but manually. Here it is:
IMG_4235.jpg
The smallest veins and lines are very easy to do .
 
Leo does not polished . There's only work with knives and chisels . And the first job with the " Druid " polished , but not paper, and this . This conventional sawing and bafiki polish. They loved me . There are solid , there are soft . My wife works in a nail service . Once asked her to try and loved it. Use them not only in the thread , but also in other work with the model.

Thanks for the tip about the oil. I'll try. I do not have much experience. Tung bought , tried on different wood species . Loved it. Therefore, they use them.

If you lived closer I would share with you a sample .
 It is very good that you can choose a lot of good oil.

Hi Nigel .
Happy if it is useful . In Russia we have a cartoon of Baron Munchausen . This character is always saying, " Desperate situations do not happen! "
If this case does not help anyone to despair , I will be very happy

Good afternoon, everybody. 
I finished another small order. This is the most difficult job, that I had. But very interesting. I very much enjoyed the thread. 
This figure rooster for the French frigate «Le Francois». 
That's how this figure looks in the drawings.

Fabulous Alexander :wub:  :wub: A truly beautiful piece of carving!You must have taken extreme care to avoid anything breaking off,particularly the claws that run against the grain.

 

Kind Regards

yeah, it was hard work. Everything is very subtle. And legs and wings. At this time, there were no accidents, nothing had to be restored as a lion. I tried. Well, it all worked out.

I would advise the client not to fit it until the end of the build!! :D All that work and it gets caught whilst doing the rigging would be devastating.

These pieces are exquisite. The detail is amazing. You do beautiful work. You can start doing custom work for people who model but don't know how to carve.

Я не советовал бы клиент не вписать его до конца, чтобы строить! :DВсе, что работа, и она попадает в то время как делать фальсификации будет иметь разрушительные последствия.

 

С наилучшими пожеланиями Найджел

 


I do not know if I've translated and understood your words. If I wrote an answer wrong, I apologize. 
Master, for which I made ​​this thread young. He is 21 year. But he was already an experienced master and I'm sure he knows how to do the installation. Thanks for your advice, I will tell him. 
I do not know whether his model masts and rigging. Later try to show a photo with his model. I really like his ship model.
