After reading EGA’s project, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/4042, and how all he uses is a small gouge and a pocket knife, it got me to thinking.
First off, this is not a game of one-ups-manship. Purely a self directed learning adventure. However, I encourage anyone to try something different. If you find inspiration here then that makes it all the more worthwhile.
I sat down and got to wondering what I may be able to carve with one tool, one tool only, and not be a knife. I had a small piece of poplar left from the Santa Spirit, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/4090. So, I picked a small gouge and commenced to piddling with it. After a few hours this is the result.
If nothing else, I learned how to employ the gouge better for future projects.
I hope you like my little critter. My vote is that it looks like a pig. I have also heard mouse.
