At the beginning of 2012, I decided that learning to carve would be one of my goals for this year. I had never carved before. Here is my progress so far.
Above, a basswood Santa/Wizard guy I made while taking a face carving class.
Below, my most recent basswood relief carving in the 17th century New England style that Peter Follansbee teaches.
At the bottom, some cherry and maple spoons I carved.
