Hi all…

I figured I would try my hand at carving and this is my first attempt.

Wood is Basswood, and I enjoyed it, but probably would have enjoyed it more if I had a proper set of carving chisels/knives.

Comments, Critiques, Suggestions and tips are appreciated!

I like it. It reminds me of my father.

Nice first one . A few gouges can do a lot of work . Decent quality and sharp tools will make the next one easier .

Have your say...
