Nice looking carving, must be difficult to carve small items. Do you hold them in your other hand while carving. Welcome to lj’s, great to have you here on the site, thanks for sharing

...Hmmm, carving… that is holding a small piece of wood, pressing a very sharp tool next to my bare hand. I think I will let you do this. I think your work is careful neat and artistic.
