For Christmas this year, dh and I got our ds2 (Joel) a basic woodcarving set. He's been working away at a couple of things .. Here's a picture of him in progress on what I believe is only his 2nd project. Possibly third. He's made a letter "P", two tiny swords out of one block of wood, and then this word. He's using an old Pampered Chef apron of mine so he doesn't get shavings all over the living room.
Here's a project he finished last week. He's had no training, and is just jumping in .. I think he did really well!
