This is my oldest project that I still have. I carved this in 6th or 7th grade at school. There is a piece of log fence missing from the left, but it is around somewhere.

Obviously I didn’t know anything about carving or horse anatomy at the time, but it has lasted amazingly well.

Cheap pine approx 6” tall & 1” thick – varnished.

I would say that’s pretty good for how young you were when you made it. It’s always cool to go back and look at those things that were done so long ago and see how we’ve progressed.

That would put you in primary school. Very well done, I hope you got good marks.

Your project pic got me to thinking of the ones I remember making in 7th or 8th grade shop class myself.
I haven’t thought of them for what seems like forever and I don’t know what happened to them.
A couple of small boxes, maybe a sign.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Great nostalgia. At that same age, I would have been using my wood burning kit and also making horses! I doubt any of that stuff survived…

Have your say...
