After I carved what I was hoping would be a loon but ended up no quite proper, I picked up a book and tried to follw the plans for carving the pup and boot.

They didn’t turn out so well but the basic structures are there. Plus had fun creating them which is the important part.

Carving is tough. I couldn’t do it to save my life. You did get the basic structure quite nicely and maybe a little hand sanding or power sanding, shaping with a Dremel would finish them off. Keep at it and keep having fun.

Papa, I’ve struggled with carving and I believe that most people who take it up do. Some of my first carvings were really pitiful. The key is to stay with it and if you want to do it then be determined that you are going to learn how and practice, practice, practice. I believe that is 90% of it. So keep on going.
