I am a retired Sheetmetal worker. I now make and sell wooden items at craft fairs. Lots of small boxes with inlaid images in the hinged lid, and toys, along with some trunks,wooden vases, and crosses I have made.
I started my wood working by trying relief carving and looking for things to carve on. I made some fireplace bellows and boxes for this. I no longer do much carving.
