    Wood Carving, lathe turner, chainsaw carving
  1. All good Si, Been working with Clay rather than the saws. Hope to get back carving in the next few weeks, potential work on a commission for a school so best get the saws out soon.
  2. Great work and seriously that Hedgehog is the superb. They will fly out in garden centres.
  3. Nice work Si, love the character in the owls
  4. That'll be a popular carving at this time of year.
  5. Great piece of work. I bet that didn't hang around too long. Welcome and looking forward to seeing more carvings.
  6. Mousey Thompson would be proud of that. Great job Rick.
  7. Top handle doesn't give you the control for carving, not a safe option unless you have the wrist strength of Kong and the skin of Godzilla. Rear handle give you the grip n control.
  8. Like it and love the expression you have caught.
  9. Like the style of these Si, very effective.
  10. Thanks Si, still got a bit to do, but will thin down the wings and tail and then make an attempt on the face. Will try to call in at some point.
  11. Thought I'd have a go at a flying Owl.Still got the detail, burn n sand etc to go.
  12. Thanks Ian, will be trying your advice on the next batch.
  13. Hey Ian, no offence taken, just glad of the feedback. I get really frustrated at what I produce as it's never the same as what's in my head. Many thanks for the comments and if you have any tips on shaping the talons. Do you use saw, dremel or carving chisels?
