Catalpa wood, 11”x14”x3.75” I learned the glued on copy technique from Chris Pye’s Woodcarving Workshop online video lessons, the guy knows his stuff! I had acquired more tools by this time, and got a feel for using a mallet as well. Started making my own jigs to hold the piece as carving screws and the like are insanely expensive (will post these and other goodies in ‘my workshop’). Catalpa was more of a challenge to carve than basswood, but I like a good test. Finish is homemade beeswax/carnauba wax mixture burnished with a cotton sock.
