Hello there fellow LJ’s
This is my first attempt in power carving. I have to admit refering to a picture from a book to start me out.
This is tupelo painted in oil, then varnish, so nobody would try to eat it . I had enough fun to continue, but I will try to be more creative next time.
Feel free to comment and have a nice day in the shop.

Brillant…. Carving is something I know I will never achieve I simply don’t have the genes to do it, but it means I appreciate the skill that you clever people have to do it all the more.

Well done !!
