    I love that you're using wood that's found locally!

    This is so lovely! There's such a satisfying joy to be found in a simple design beautifully executed, as this is

    It was a lot of fun and turns out I really enjoy making stuff for others and far more likely to finish the projects than when I try to make stuff for myself (read no dead line lol).

    Oh my goodness, they're utterly gorgeous! I especially love how you've placed the tiny seahorse, and made a wonderful miniature underwater scene.

    Thanks EP After I realized that I enjoyed carving I started to read about the conservation status of exotic woods. Apparently a lot of the dark woods that people really love are red listed. Then I started thinking about that combined with the impact of shipping wood and I decided that I would feel a lot better about learning to carve if my wood was sustainably sourced.

    Finished another.



    I think I might need to eventually invest in a carving knife. I've been doing these with my exacto and it's not very comfortable to hold.

    Okay, this will be my last post this this week on this thread... my hands hurt. Three sticks in four days might be a bit much for them.

    Here's a spiral stick from young cedar that I worked on today and yesterday.

    Jane your carved sticks are wonderful. You got me inspired to try! I started a pair of matching sticks from a piece split in half, gonna need a carving knife too but no idea where to start with that.

    Thanks! I'm happy I inspired you! If it helps I've been using an exacto knife to carve with It's not ideal but it does the job.
