The Wooden Chopper – Fo’ Chisel

Some of you might have seen my Instagram activity of late and this is what I have been working on.

It is a wooden designer toy called ‘Fo’ Chisel’, designed by UK Designer Nicky Lewis.

Over the past few weeks I have displayed my progress of hand calving this beauty and I had a lot of fun doing it.

Check out the Fo’ Chisel site and have a go at one yourself!

Here is the final. The idea was to create a lumberjack to keep my theme, but I decided on a robot to juxtapose the idea of robots being metal. The design was to follow the style of a tin toy with simple block shapes of colour with added pyrography to add depth and detail.
