I am taking the Mary May online carving course. This is a complicated version of the exercise, she as The point of the lesson is to carvewith the grain, not against it and carving left and right handed. It is a piece of mahogany, 9” sq, 8/4.

Nice work, I know how hard it is to cut both ways on both sides.

Great work on this Rob. Believe it or not I signed up to Mary’s online school just a couple of days ago. I’ve been doing a little figure carving and I happened onto one of her videos and thought I might give it a try. She is an excellent teacher. I have tried relief carving on my own several times with disastrous results, but I carved the camellia project and it came out pretty good, so I signed up. Have fun and keep us up to date on your progress!

That is some great work!

I would have said it was done either on a router table or via CNC Machine. Yes, that’s a compliment! ;-)

I have to remember this course.

Cheers!

Gary, Mike and Robert, Thank you for taking a look and your kind words. It was really satisfying to do. Mary May explaines each cut as she shows you how to make them. She makes it interesting and engaging. Ck it out.
