As I continue to delve into woodworking, I decided to branch out and make my wife some nice things out of some chunks of walnut that I had sitting around. The designs are not entirely my own, although I did change things here or there as I saw fit. I don’t have carving chisels, so this was done with the bandsaw, bench chisels, a drill press, rasps/files, and a ton of hand sanding when complete.

Carving is a good way to relax, at least for me. Nice job.
