Carving qualifies as a project, right?? Cottonwood bark – the one on the right is still in progress.

Those are really great. I would love to learn how to do those. How did you learn? Take classes or just gave it a go…..

Not only do your carvings qualify as a project – they are a great project. Wish I could do that :-))

if you worded with wood then it is woodworking. .. and even if you didn’t work with wood (I’ve seen plexiglass chairs before or something like that) then it is STILL a project
and this one—wow very cool

Sweet! Looks like you could be an awesome totem-pole carver.

Thanks for the kind words. Max, My dad is the real carver of the family – he walked me thru a couple and after you get the basic steps, it isn’t too difficult. Keeping the tools sharp is a challenge though :) If you aren’t lucky enough to have a dad for a carver (or vica versa), I’ve seen books at Woodcraft on something very similar, that would get you started.

You’re off to a great start.
Like Debbie said, “if it’s wood it’s good”.
Cottonwood bark looks like a fun material to carve, because there’s no grain to contend with. Someone gave me some once, but it was to punky, so I never got to try it.

good looking faces. I tried bark last Spring in a timed carving event at a show. I didn’t do so well. They limited me to 3 tools, and It just didn’t come together for me as quick as the timer went off.
