That is an amazing little carving. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Oh my! What a cute tiny stool. That style would make a nice full size rustic stool too I think.

Thanks, colleagues! The stool is made of an integral slice of a boxwood.
I am glad to join your warm collective!

That is really nice. Like everyone else said, you must have amazing eyes. I hope you can keep them that way. This reminds me of the time I put a tack in my dad’s chair….. worst whoopin’ I ever got. Welcome to the site.

Very nice. Makes the small bear I carved years ago to test my carving knives look really easy.
