I wanted to try my hand at carving. I find that I need more tools (which is a good thing) and a lot more experience. This is a combination of pine and butternut. Butternut is good for carving but I must select my pieces of it a little more carefully.

Yeah, I know what you mean, rule #1:” always design your next project around that new tool you want”.
Wonderful chest. The carving look great from where I stand.

I always try to do a project in which I need something new. Otherwise I will not win the race. He who has the most tools, so their kids can sell them at the garage sale, wins. I have done a little carving but never on this scale.

I like it. If that’s your first carving, keep at it man, you’ve got some real talent.
