This piece is a quick sketch of a female rear, I used a piece of oak skirting offcut, about 20mm thick and a knife. I then used a scraper and finally oiled the surface.

I love simplicity and I was trying for a simple picture in four or less lines. I have a few more ideas for further pieces like this as I think they’d make great gifts, a sort of permanent greetings card.

Cool simplicity. I wouldn’t mind getting a greeting card like that :) but I’d probably get slapped by SWMBO lol Nice carving!
