I don’t usually carve from a pattern, but I couldn’t resist doing this one.

I carved this for my Irish “Sweetheart Bairbre”, otherwise known as my spouse.

It’s carved from a single piece of Basswood.

The dimensions are 4” x 4” x 8”

The pattern came from the British Magazine, “WOODCARVING”.

It’s a very good magazine

Thanks, rikkor, & Jiri !

I like looking at some of the older postings also.

When you post something on L J’s, I guess it’s forever.
