Greetings and salutations fellow Lumberjocks!
It’s been a while since my last post. I was deployed so I had to put this on the back-burner for a short duration. Anyways, I decided to try my hand at whittling. So, for your consideration, I present the ball in a cage. It’s made from basswood which, from what I understand, can be a whittlers best friend. At least for beginners like myself. I also purchased a knife from Flexcut which worked out pretty well. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

First of all, I think you’re awesome for serving our country and letting me do what I love!

Second, excellent job carving. This takes a level of patience I do not possess.

Good start. I did a few of these and they are always picked up by friends and family when they visit followed by
the inevitable question, ” wow how did you do that?”
It’s very satisfying to see their faces when you tell them it’s all 1 piece.

First of all thanks for your service to our country.

Neat little project. I wish I could whittle but my mind don’t think that way.
