Re: Some simple small deer

I've never tried that but I have to say getting them all to look the same would be my downfall I'm sure.
Don't worry too much with negative posters- could be trolls

Those deer are great. I really like his website Woodworking for engineers, his homemade wooden bandsaw is amazing. I recommend his youtube channel to Matthiaswandel - YouTube

Re: Some simple small deer

Mate, ignore the negative people. Most of the Carving i have done have been pro-bono, free work. For community spaces or children's-education stuff. i have heard a few people say 'why you doing that if they aren't paying you?'.... money is NOT the only reason to do anything. For me carving is a hobby that sometimes brings in a few quid. Doing free work is good for the soul and I admire anyone who does it.
now...can i have a free deer?

Re: Some simple small deer

Just a quick idea for anyone who fancies having a go at making these to sell on.

Make a simple base, drill a shallow hole, then add a tea light.

Re: Some simple small deer

They look really good - well done for doing something for free - not sure why you would have people be negative about it
