Well, I finally got around to taking the camera with me to my power carving class. and the following pictures are the result. The first few are what I have done so far. The Finished eagle head is the one I am using for reference. My instructor carved that one. and the final picture is the carving booth I was sitting at and I am eventually going to build. My instructor sells the booth supplies including the motor for dust control for $65.00. I am all over that. This guy is an awesome instructor. More pictures to come later.

Rustic: Way to go learing a new shill. Looks like a fun project.

The way that you’re picking up these carving skills is quite impressive. I believe there’s a lot more patience there than I am capable of. Very cool.
