This little carving is carved in English Walnut that was cut from a tree in my sisters backyard.
I enjoy using found wood instead of factory milled wood…It proves to be much more of a challenge.
Notice the hole in the boat from the beaching on the rocks, its hard to see but there is a cave carved in the rocks.

and now we see what “experience” brings… amazing.
The idea is brilliant, the execution wonderful, and those little touches (the cave and the hole) puts it over the top! Well done
