Carving idea

I was thinking how to design the little Isle of Lewis chessman -style Aragorn I plan to make for lindahoyland, and trying to decide which wood to use (apple?  holly?  cherry?  Maybe even hazel or ash. Or green oak? Although oak is awful hard on the hands when carved seasoned, it should be much easier if carved green and allowed to dry.  And Aragorn seems quite an oak sort of person.).

Anyway, I was turning wood over in my head, and it occurred to me that I should also carve a set of Eregion carvings, in, OF COURSE holly!  I could do a Celebrimbor, a Narvi, a Durin III, a Galadriel and a Celeborn (maybe not Celeborn.  I just can't really like Celeborn, for some reason).   Can't think of any other named characters in Eregion.  Maybe just some generic Gwaith-i-Mírdain, if I don't run out of steam.

Annatar, Lord of Gifts?

I was agonising over whether to do him! I'm not actually sure I want a carving of him in my house. Not standing next to Celebrimbor, anyway. :-oooo

... although now I'm thinking that I am attracted to the idea of carving all the others in holly, but doing Annatar in ash.

I could like Celeborn more if he wasn't called "The wise", against all the evidence.

Too true! Also, he should just sort out his backstory and stick with it :-D

Yes; all this shilly-shallying around shows a lack of character, as well as a lack of wisdom.
