Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to:

    Hello there:
    I want to attempt to do my first wood carved Ventriloquist Dummy head, but are wondering what the best choices of wood to use.
    I want to make a head on the larger size so what would you consider a good size head?

    I know you can use Basswood , but it is a bit to soft for me. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
    Randy Scott
