Very nice, I like walnut as a carving medium, it’s great for fine details.

You know I keep telling myself I need something special to do , but I guess the only way to know is to get into it. My question is this, did you free hand the art work or trace it? As with spirit carving i am at a loss for where to start, but with some guide lines I might not feel so frozen to plunge my knife in and go.

Great job by the way, I look ward to doing my own reliefs

Hi Wizard

My carvings are done with a hand carver similar to a dentist drill.The patterns are put on mylar paper and then transfered to the wood.Go to www.billjanney .com and see some of his carvings on rifle stocks.Allso check out www.profesional hobbies.com.

If I can help anyway let me know.
