Rocky McFarland



Very few figure makers actually have the skill to carve a figure from wood. But this week I had the joy of seeing first hand this figure, created and built by Scott Bryte (PA). Beautiful character and craftsmanship.
The head, hands, feet, and body torso are all carved of laminated basswood. I do not have the skills or tools of a woodcarver, so I personally have never carved a figure from wood. But I admire those who do. I've handled more than a few wood carved figures and Bryte's work is as good as any I've seen.
This beautiful figure, Rocky McFarland, belongs to Keith Suranna.

  1. He is a beauty. Perhaps too intelligent... but that makes the conversation interesting and funny.
