Basswood Ventriloquist Project


Here you are if you want a very unique looking ventriloquist figure to complete. This guy is all basswood carved and has side moving self centering eyes, individual raising eyebrows and slot jaw. He comes with a wood body that is complete with the head lock installed. Body has shaped shoulder boards and fits the ball of the head perfectly.

You add the arms and legs and you will have a complete figure but if you are handy you could over sculpt the head to give him much ore detail.

This is a full size head and body and will make a 40″ tall figure.

I am pricing this at the price of a toy conversion figure so some one is going to get a deal and end up with a great basswood figure. By the way I have no clue who the builder of this was but it does have some age. I would guess about 25 years old.
