When teaching beginning carving class all students were required to learn to use their most important tools first, The eye and the pencil. Before they did anything else they had to draw this old teaching aid/carving no big mystery here, just an exercise in concentration.

And they said it couldn’t be done!!
Very good exercise for the eye and for the thought process.

Porchfish, I tried to print this one out to practice on later, but could not, it only took me four attempts
to draw a rough picture in ink, after I finish with the other projects I will come back after I find a pencil and
attempt a better drawing. I think I will take this one to the first wood carvers meeting, since we are
supposed to bring a project, and even I should be able to carve an almost straight line. Thank you for
the brain strecher.
