My wife purchased me a set of Pfeil chisels for Christmas and this is my first carving. I know it’s not great, but I’ve found that carving is very relaxing and the results give me enough hope to continue practicing.

As with any project if you get, learn or enjoy something out of it, it was worth it. Looks good
