Well, this is definitely going to be the longest video so far. I am about 3/4 of the way through the carving, and it is 5-1/2 hours long. I could probably edit some of it out. But then it’s deciding what parts to cut???
I’m really enjoying this carving because I’m sort of designing it as I go. With it being 1″ thick, I can do a lot of variations in shape. The basic outline of the leaf is already defined by the saw cuts, but what goes on with this leaf – nobody knows! Not even me – until I carve it.
