I wanted to make something special for my girlfriend’s birthday and this is what I decided on. It’s a replica of my own hand to hold her jewelry and other stuff. I had a long scrap of walnut from a tabletop I made. The scrap was about 3/4” thick by 2” wide. I cut it into about ten pieces, glued them all together and started chippin’ away. The worst part, as with many projects, was the sanding. However, I am pleased with the outcome of my first carving, and so was my girlfriend. The finish is a tung oil, varnish blend.
