Fo’ Chisel – Nicky Lewis

Fo' Chisel top banner
Fo’ Chisel its ready for you all to make some awesome customs with a brilliant concept made by UK based Nicky Lewis with no child labour involved. Crafted in an Italian factory with fine quality Pine wood carefully hand carved. The concept is simple 6-inches high articulated wooden platform that is deigned by you , plus it has a sweet-smell of pine wood grown in northern Italy.

The figure is manufactured in Italy locally to the sustainable pine forest. The rough pieces are initially machined using a 5-axis CNC machine and some pantography magic. Each wooden piece is then hand-finished by a local craftsman.

Firstly, the pieces are sanded to give them a pleasantly smooth finish. Thereafter, holes are drilled at both sides of the arm and head joints, and pieces of dowel are then glued in to complete the figure.

Manufacturing the figure in this way ensures that each piece is of a very high quality – the joints are reassuringly tight without any movement when the arms are positioned horizontally.

The arms and the head are removable, allowing for easy customisation of the figure. The face sticker is also removable – but I think he looks kinda cute with it.

£48 a pop is pretty high but considering the quality of the wood and the man power to produce Fo’ Chisel you got to agree with the price right?

Here are a few UK artists showing what you could do with a Fo’ Chisel

Mission is to is to spread the joys of carving and painting

Fo’ Chisel doesn’t stop with a wooden figure….. oh no Nicky has made a resin 4 inch version of the Fo’ Chisel!  personally and truthfully I think this was a mistake as it just loses the great concept and uniqueness. I have seen many examples of figures with a square heads with have similar bodies. Why not just make smaller Fo’ Chisel? Maybe I am wrong? apart from that the resin Fo’ Chisel does look exact and looks well made. He is painted in a rather fetching yellowy-green colour, and then printed with his cheeky face. The resin version is priced at a respectable £14. Both the wooden and resin will be online to purchase from Sunday 16h August.
