Given the thumb a good rest so time to start back. so having a go at a couple of Ducks, a male and female mallard, tending to use the vice and chisel route to relieve the pressure on thumb when hand holding to carve. Will prob make them interchangeable, this saves on shanks and if any one requests any or some of the range it's a simple job to turn them into a single fixed topper stick.

The pic's were taken at a local carving club I go to when in Brid. - East Yorkshire Woodcarvers , a small friendly group who mainly do relief carving, but since I started one or two are showing interest in having a go at making a stick.

More progress on the Duck, although having a prob with conjunctivitis stings like hell in sunlight so have to head for the shade and wear sun specs.
