These are tools from my grand-grandfather (one – made in 1772 and another – in 1812 years). And my tools – I did them from my own projects for sculpture carving. For russian and celtic carving – special. And the cross made with these tools. Russian basswood.

Great legacy they have left behind and it looks like you are living up to it! The tools look great for their age, are you sure they are over 200 years old? Nice work on the cross
