I like this one very much. Nice, well done! You realize of course that your bar set so high on your first one, it means you will be challenging your self to excel. Bet you wouldn’t have it any other way.

I’ve never tried any carving like this but I do agree about the sharpening. It is such a gateway skill, once one gets over that hurdle the field just opens up and everything else seems so much more approachable.
