Topic tags/keywords: carving tool carving traditional

Hi.

Starting to do some carving I have come up with my first try! I have used about 6 hours so far and I would like to know what I should do starting with the pictures I took today.
I would like to get some comment on it and I can manage even if someone say this is nothing. I just want to know how I have done so far.

My first carving

Looking good from what I can see of the picture. I could tell more if the picture was bigger.

Looks great. I think you have a knack for carving. Post it on your project page so we can get the larger pic.

Hi,

I have no clue how to upload my pictures here! I have tried and then the quality is so bad and the pictures areso small. I have uploaded them to the addressabove and here you can see them better.

The carving has been done on birch and it is very hard! I really envy all of you the basswood. Don’t know where to get it so I need to use what I have.

2feet of snow since Saturday here. Have to go and showel more from my 1 mile road.
