I posted this in the woodcarving forum and was told to post it here in the projects also.
Most of my woodcarving is what is called chip carving and can be very detailed. This past year at a woodcarving show there is a very good miniature caricature carver, Don Mertz, who made a miniature chip carving. All I could say was “if he can do that I can.” So the challenge was on and at the Dayton woodcarving show there was a category for a carving that had to fit into a 2” cube so I made a 1 7/8” cube, just in case their box was small. LOL! I made this cube out of holly wood because of the small details basswood would not hold them and holly would. To my surprise I did take a blue ribbon with it.
