  • First carving project

    Well, I've just completed (I think) my first project. Cut from basswood for a class for seniors. I see many opportunities for growth.

    Comments, advice?

    Very nice, Steve!
    For your consideration: You could carve a frame as part of the relief (See "To frame or not frame" in the Chip & Relief forum). You could mark a border around the face of the carving and extend the background to that border. There is no "right" way - It is your carving!

      Good job, Steve! Very nice first carving. You'll find lots of seniors on the forum, so make yourself at home. Feel free to ask questions, make comments, and use the search function for good info.

      Welcome!

        That is very good for a first project! Very clean and much more recognizable than my first carving. Keep at it and keep us posted!

              Looks like nice clean cuts and the rounding is good - I'd say well done!
