This is one of the first carvings I made back in the primary school. It was a gift for my father’s birthday.
It has no finishing on it.

I think it would take me about 20 years of practice to reach that level.

Thank you!

By the way, the layout was formed in my master’s head and I did the implementation.

Check out Dick Cains work, he’s awlful good at chip carving. Probably has 50 or 60 yrs experience. LOL. No kidding. You do very nice work too.

What a wonderful sentimental piece. Nicely done. Very articulate design and craftsmanship. How old were you when you did this project?
