This photinia wood is dense and difficult to cut, but I managed to get a woodcut in it. I used a 1/8” v tool for the bird, and a 1/4” flat bench chisel for the larger sections of the background. The branch is 2 inches in diameter.

Nice. I’m glad you included the stamp result. That made it all come together.
