This is my first attempt at carving. I used an old pine board and just carved the easiest project I could come up with. I still have sanding and the finish to complete but I thought I’d share what I have so far.

Very nice 1st attempt! And very smart to try carving in pine (which is a pretty easy wood to carve) for your first time. My 1st carving was done in maple which can me a son of a B!%$# to carve some times because it’s so hard! Just keep on challenging yourself with more and more advanced designs, but you’re off to a good start : )
