That’s just impressive. I’d be thrilled if it was my tenth piece, let alone first.

Great Carving. Sorry, but I’ve just got to say it….. “Simply a WHALE of a job”

Good Luck on future projects!

thanks everyone, my teacher was a big help.The hardest part for me was doing the rope border and keeping the angles around the curves. My eyes were buggn out of my head by the time i was finished.
