Nice looking, you will have to talk him into getting an account. Great to see that you share a hobby. I bet the bench will be really great when you get it finished.

Excellent work. Hang on to that piece. The first one always seems to carry a large sentimental value.

Good job. It looks like the shelf it made out of pine? If so, you may want to add a pre-stain before staining the shelf. Pine get blotchy sometimes with stains, as it absorbs unevenly. The pre-stain will help with that.

Yes it was made out of pine.. I used Minwax Early American Stain with Spar Urathane Varnish.. My projects for the time being are helping him and putting on any finish be it paint stain etc… I want to learn to wood burn and carve but have not yet been able to figure it out… School goes back in session in 20 days then I will have time to try something new..

The secret to carving is cut away all the parts that don’t belong in the project.
That’s the short version. Make sure you always carve away from your body. Never carve up, in case the tool slips, you won’t stab yourself in the face. Keep your tools razor sharp. Buy high quality tools.
Carve with the grain, and if it’s a round object, carve dowh hill. You’ll be starting at the middle of the ball, and carving both directions from there. If it’s a difficult wood to carve, spray it with mineral spirits, as needed to keep if softer.
Practice Prctice practice.
That’s it. Have fun and good luck.
I hope this helps you get started.
