  • Very First Carving...ever!

    Well here it is my very first ever Carving attempt. Wife has already said it has to go on the tree, (I was going to put a way and make a better one for the tree). First picture is the start and then the almost finished paint on the Santa.

      I think you did a very good job too! Make sure you date and sign and number them.

        Yep, put it on the tree! The first one is always an important step.

                Ken, Very good first carving. Very good any time/number carving. And yes I can tell it was your first...Not by the carving but by the condition of your glove. No holes, slices, or blood stains... Keep up the good work. Tom H

                    Ken,

                    I carved my first piece roughly six years ago, mine hangs up all year, the first one is always a keeper......Yours if very nice too, a keeper for sure, also like your paint job. Welcome to a relaxing hooby thats enjoyed by many of us here. Good luck and looking forward to seeing more carving postings down the road. Bill

                      Way to go Ken..

                      Getting the first one done was a big deal for me but after that it seemed as if they just started to happen and the more you do the better you will become. As Shawn Cipa say`s practice, practice , practice. that is the key. Good job on your first and I`m looking forward to seeing some more in the future...Bruce

                          Excellent! I'm with your wife. Put it on the tree and you can still put what ever follows there also!

                            Great first ornament. Like Bill, Mine are displayed all year long with the other carvings.

                            Yes keep it and this time next year compare that carving with your first.
