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.

Good to see U back at it Gloops. I have given the paws a break as well, seems the old Arthur doesn't like all this humid, wet weather we are having.

Looking good Gloops! looks like you have some younger carvers in your group. That is great. our group are all gray hairs.
