I picked up a wittling knife at a estate sale, and looked up some carving mini characters on youtube. Thought I would give it a go. The tall one was made from a scrap piece of Bradfor Pear, it did carve nicely. The small one is from a scap 2×4, and it carved easily except for the knot on his face.

I’m going to have to try carving too. I think it is harder than it looks.

I’ve got the chisels … just need to do it.

Getting use out of the mallets! Neat work.

That kind of wood work is way past my patience and skill levels!

Good for you!

Very nice, especially considering the wood you used! Bradford Pear is very hard for a knife, and 2×4 is usually either Douglas Fir or Pine, and neither will hold much detail.
