” The Wizard of Woe”.... A packed pipe and a moment of reflection… This fella’ is carved from a Pine Knot. It’s a very light and holey piece of wood due to the prior inhabitants before the wizard moved in-ants…No worries, they are gone now :)

Each project you post makes me want to try my hand at carving, but then I will compare my work to yours and I will have to hang up my tools and bow to the master. Another great piece.

TechTeacher04, you are too kind… I am still learning and that is what carving is all about. If you wish to carve, then carve. You will suck at first- so did I :) We just have to keep trying to get better and learn new things. Being a woodcarver never gets boring because there is always something new and exciting to figure out. Thank you very much for your compliments!

Very cool. I believe you can find a face in any piece you pic up.
