  • St Francis

    This carving of St Francis is 7 1/2 inches tall. All the pieces are carved from Myrtle wood. I found Mrytle very hard and not easy to carve.

      Joe, It looks like it was worth the effort. The grain really shows off your work.
      If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

        One thing about that hardwood, is it holds detail well, which your carving is a prime example, great job

                    Nice! Someone gave me a piece of myrtle wood. Probably because it's so hard to carve.

                        Thanks Randy. I guess that puts it around the same as oak and that's about what I thought.
