I would like to start by saying thanks to Curt from Carterswhittling for turning me onto Mary May’s carving school online.. she has some great videos of carving technique. I used one of those videos to create this little wall hanging for my daughters birthday”She loves it”. Its made of Hondo Mahogany. I don’t have all the tools that Mary has, but was able to reproduce this with little difficulty after watching her vid.. Job well done to Mary May and a big thanks to Curt… hope ya all like it.. it was fun to do, and only took about 5 hours.. its 19” long and 3 1/2” wide, each knot is 5 1/2 inches long and I used Mary’s template for it. She not only provides instruction, but also a tool list and template for each class that she teaches.. I agree with Curt, anyone who is interested in adding carving to there skill list would do well to invest in Mary’s classes.. its really very cost effective in that you can have monthly access to the entire site for only $10.00, a one week pass is $5.00 and the whole year is only $110.00… so its really easy to pick up some really good instruction for very little investment.. thanks for looking Papa

Very nice carving. You’re going to have to buy more tools now, aren’t you?
Yeah, you know it.
