First carvings 2010
First there is Jimmy patiently waiting for his nightly treat. A T Bone or something of that ilke? No A fish oil capsule.
Then the wee mannies ( a collective term in the Doric for men). The carvings of Tom, and a gentleman by the name of Jack Price have always been great to study. So I've given it a go. As Tom puts his Oar Carver as a size comparison I've avoided that and used another fine knife.
I cut a length of 1"x1" to try a couple more of these. The ideas are drawn on paper and I'll see how they go. The cold spell has meant SWMBO has served notice on my time in the shed. Thirty mins a day, maximium. So carving these inside is an alternative thats attrative.
