Howdy, I’m trying my first carving. After seeing your masterpieces, I feel like throwing mine into the fire. Fantastic job!

Mark,
If you saw my first carvings you would be hard pressed to tell if it was the bird it was supposed to be. Keep carving and remember, there are no mistakes in carving, only smaller carvings.

You are certainly an accomplished wood carver. Well done! Looks like your second link is ‘broken’?
