Was it difficult to carve this out of pine? I tried carving pine last summer and I found that when I’d carve details it was very easy to cut off too much or some parts would easily tear off. Great job.

Hi LocalMac
Pine can be hard to carve. You need very sharp chisels and a lot of patience.
I will use a dremel for all of the detail work and I also hand sand alot.
Thanks for the comment.

Great relief carvings..I have done similar carvings and used them for woodcut print editions..Printmaking is a neat way to reproduce the carved image with an edition of prints. The best part is after I am done using the carving as a print block it becomes a work of art on its own. Also a bit of advice to improve your photos….get yourself a large piece of white fabric or painters drop cloth and then tack it up to your fence before hanging your piece to photo. This blocks everything execpt what you want your audience to focus on…your art! Keep on keepin on…

nice work.
i like seeing pieces against a background like your fence it give some scale to the work.
