Given my recent success with my carving projects. Granted they are simple and beginner level which fits me at this point. However, I have decided to up the ante and create a whole new set of challenges for my self.
The photo below represents about six hours worth of work in layout, rough out and finally picking up a gouge. The piece is about 6 3/4” by about 8 1/2”. It is being made from a piece of 2×12 SPF that used to be a leveling block under our TV set in our old house.
Either I am really cheap or I just like trying to make a use for ever piece of wood I have. I guess it is both.
I am using the new chisels I just got for this project. The MIKISYO Power Grip. This may lend to a product review down the road.
The trial and error learning curve continues.
