This is made from Birch crate lumber. I made this for my Sweetie quite awhile ago, I never had a chance to put a finish on it, because she was so anxious to use it. Someday I’ll have to sneak it away from her, & finish it.

You have to be the most romantic guy I know. What an example for the rest of us.

Keep posting and carving.

And just for you: “Get back to the shop!”

your buddy,
Mark

Dick, I echo Mark’s sentiment about your romantic nature. It’s great to see a couple in love after all these years of marriage.

Love the hand mirror.

Dick,

It might be interesting to see a quick step-by-step on your carving process. I don’t want to call it simple, because that implies a lack of skill, but if you were to demo with something like the rose, that would be really great. (I think you’d just make it LOOK simple.)

Or maybe you could just give a description of your process? I’m just getting into carving, with both power tools and hand tools, and it always helps to hear the techniques of others.

The carved rose is a very nice touch.
