I am new to carving. This is only my second attempt, but it came out very nicely, I think. It’s a gift box for a bottle of wine. The box itself is made from some antique pine car siding. The top is basswood. The dovetails were done by hand, as was the carving. You can see it being made in the short video below. Thanks!

Nicely? I am seriously impressed. I think it is absolutely fantastic. I watched the video after seeing it on your Facebook post and didn’t realize it was only your second attempt. I would be happy with the results if you had done several attempts. Very nice!

If that’s only your second attempt, I can’t wait to see what else might be in store!

Great job for being a newbie to carving. I did see a band aid on one of those fingers though.

Wonderful use of reclaimed pine. Once again you have shown yourself a master of almost anything related to
wood. I am sure the recipients of this gift will cherish it for a long time. Thank you for sharing.
