The important thing is to get going on it. I’m getting started on the hand tool route. Looking forward to see how you progress.

looks good to me… ya gotta start somewhere. I think ya done a fine job. Did you use a Dremel, or a Foredom?They are both very good. I’m sure there are many others out there also.
Keep makin dust. You’ll only keep gettin better

I love my rotary tool/dremel! I hope you find yourself as addicted as I am…because from what I see you probably have a lot more talent than I do! Good Job!!!

Those are good! I’m guessing it must have been fun, since you didn’t stop after the first one. What kind of wood is it?

Thank you all for the kind comments. I’m using a Dremel. I haven’t figured out exactly how to use all the different bits yet, I’m just playing. Hopefully I’ll catch on. The wood i used for these test pieces is maple. just some scrap I had laying around.

I don’t think that’s bad at all for a first woodcarving. I think that the biggest thing is don’t give up and stay at it. It’s also important to try to learn how to sharpen your tools as quickly as you can so your not working with dull tools. Nothing will kill your spirit quicker than dull tools. Stay with it, gal.
