I’ve been doing a little carving when I just want to sit on the couch and twiddle a bit. I think most of us have done the dog and the cowboy boot during the learning curve of carving. I’ve done a troll carving before, but that was in a class with someone looking over my shoulder. These I did all by my little lonesome. Both could use some more detail work, but my knife got dull and I’ve not managed to learn how to sharpen it properly. (Not that I’ve not tried.) All in all, not the best, but not so bad. And I managed to do both without needing a bandaid. So that’s worth something!
