Well I always like to learn new things, and although I have dabbled a little in some one off ideas of small ornamental carvings on my various projects I thought I might try something more detailed. This was all an original sketch, hand drawn. I proceeded to give a shot at the job with my small set of carving tools. The wood was some scrap pine from my birdhouse project, so I put it to use!
Lucky for me, as of today recieved a great book in the mail “RELIEF CARVING IN WOOD” by Chris Pye so I am sure to understand my previous mistakes along the path and improve. Also need to put together some good sharpening routines which I know is a demand in this work of carving wood.
This was my first real effort and although still some loose ends to sand up but I thought I would share with my fellow wood maniacs….lol…cheers!
