dont know if its the right place to post this.

So over the weekend I wanted to try my hand at carving a animal head so that in the future i could intergrate it to a walking stick .

so i found a old piece of pine dowel and started carving free hand. The fun thing is that i did not start with any set idea of what i was going to make. kinda like when you scribble a line on a piece of paper and it turnes out to be something cool. Well this turned out to be a eagles head. some would say that carving or sculting is exposing the traped spirit in the medium...starting to belive this.

Hope you guys like it.

Cheers

Turned out pretty sweet. Well over half the time when I try to carve something, I don't finish it because it doesn't look like what I'd imagined. Maybe I'm just not listening to the wood.

Thank you, I just got lucky I guess. actually sold it today to one of my old clients when I use to make knives. he's going to use it for a bowie handle
