I only started playing around with wood first half of this year (when i joined here), started relief carving a few months ago at home and went to a 1 day course in july and a 2 day course end of sept.
so im relitively new to it all.
My son has been looking at my work (albeit only 3 pieces ! – i never finished my 1st one back in july) and likes my carving and he asked me if i would do his table centre pieces at his wedding, at first i was shocked….. what does he think i am ?? some professional !!! i tried not to look like i was unsure, because i was but also honoured they should want to ask me to do that sort of thing, anyway been playing around with some ideas and looking at woods with his future wife – now its sunk in it doesnt sound so daunting for me – 10 pieces and im now looking forward to starting this project.
Luckily the wedding is not till aug 2015 so i have plenty of time to do 10 centre peices, so at the moment im playing around with ideas and at the weekend will attempt some sort of rough idea !!
I will post pics of the progress as i go along here.
wish me luck haha
