My wife has been looking for things to help me relax. A few years ago she bought me a couple of carving books and a set of gouges and a knife.
I was out on a family camping trip shortly afterwards and asked my grandmother what she would like if I could carve it for her. She said a loon.
I made a few feeble attempts that I was very unhappy with. This is the first I would call finshed even if it is no where near perfect :-) It will be delivered to her in the next couple of days.
I found it quite difficult to work with. My tools are sharp but not so much my skills and choices of wood yet.
