This was another fun project. I thought it would be interesting to create a bust of Generals US Grant and Robert E. Lee. Each were carved from two pieces of wood and fasten together by drilling a large hold between the shoulder and a ¼” hole in the base of the neck and in the center of the base hole and glue a dowel in. Then I put some glue in the base hole to finalize the attachment. I turned the head slightly to one side for extra realism.
