A guy from the carving club has been coming over and getting some tips on carving in the round. He has mainly carved reliefs and wanted to pick up a few tips. So we started with a simple boot. I decided to fancy mine up a bit and make a toothpick holder after we finished that night. My daughter decided she might want it, but it needed to be painted and she wanted red (perhaps in honor of the Arkansas Razorbacks?). So here it is! Thanks for looking!

That is great

Your daughter has impeccable taste

It will stand out instead of hunt the toothpick

It doesn’t look like a simple boot to me, but then I am not much of a carver !

Well done. I love the carving and have never seen a toothpick holder like it before.
