    @juryaan Fruit trees are supposed to be the best for carving. American saw makers used applewood for handles. Lime and pear are great for carving spoons – Welsh love spoons are almost always carved from lime.

    Hello David, before these few projects i had never carved anything myself also and thought as you do that it was intended for more artistic people,until i saw Paul’s first dvd ”Woodworking Essentials”.

    After that i ordered a gouge that Paul recommended and just began,i can tel you that it is a joy to do and (for me) very addictive.

    I made a dove tail template.  It’s pretty rough, I need to make another one.  🙂  This one was good practice though.

    I’ve learned that I’m really good at planing things to be out of square!  By the time I finished “squaring” this thing, it was almost an 1/8″ too small in width and thickness.

    I made a couple of mistakes. I think you’ll be able to see them in the pictures.  Among them is not being able to saw a straight line.

    This one was made from some Alder wood.  It’s the only thing I had laying around that was close to the correct dimensions.  I think it’s too soft so I’ll search for some Oak to make the next one out of.

    Kelly,

    I think making small Items like that, can sometimes be harder than making a much bigger project
