I posted a little video yesterday of a carving I was doing yesterday—you can see it HERE.

this is the final product. It is very much a “doodle” – nothing particularly fancy and I didn’t put too much effort into cleaning it up or doing intricate passes on it.

This is just a scrap piece of wood that used to be a bleacher seat years and years ago. It was a fun design and I may explore it more in the future. In the meantime, this one will be looking for a home – I bet it would look nice in a cabin or the office of an outdoors-y person. :)

Lis, this is an outstanding piece of work.
