This is my first attempt at a carving. Carving proved to be difficult for me. Using walnut with some figure in it wasn’t the smartest idea either. I knew that going into the project but did it anyway. I don’t have a good eye for 3-D and can barely write my name legibly. I got the picture of this bear out of a carving book which was very helpful.
The carving will be inset in the headboard of a bed I’m making. The outside edge is stained with ebony to give the carving some contrast.
