When I am helping out someone that is new to carving, I tell then not to stress out about it. It is just a hunk of wood and if you don’t like the way it turns out, just throw it in the burn pile.

Well, sometimes the reverse is true as well.

Nice carving! I’ve done a few of these myself and really enjoyed it. Almost looks like mesquite. Is it?

If it doesn’t work out, you just make it something smaller and smaller…
