Ive got the book and would love to carve one myself but i have a lot of trouble training my brain to see in 3 dimensions. You did a great job on the carving.

Thanks! Just follow the depths given in the book. I'll bet after you make a couple your 3d skills will improve. If you are using hand tools, don't use tupelo. You need special knives for it, which I didn't know when I bought that wood for this project. It takes slicing knives or power carving. I managed to get it done using regular carving tools, but had to use them along the grain only, as the wood just tears, no matter how sharp the gouges are. Never again. Use basswood!
