    The first carve is really cool isn't it. You might want to go through the tutorials and complete those projects. That will give you a great head start.
    Sometimes I'm just totally underwhelmed!

    I had been going through them while waiting for the machine to arrive but didn't actually carve them.

    You're being smarter than I was on my first test dltccf. I had waited 4 or 5 months using the layaway plan so I thought I was ready to carve a wedding gift right out of the chute. Not the best idea, looking back now but we've all had to start somewhere. Congratulations on that first one, and now just a few thousand more carves to come . . .

    Keep us informed Sir.

    I carved the letter opener today that was posted here recently to experiment with two sided carving. It turned out very nice out of an old scrap piece of pine. Went to see a friend who has all kinds of wood and came home with some cedar, cherry, oak, ash, poplar, and a pretty piece of sassafras. My wife who loves horses wants a letter opener with a horse on it so I 'm going to try that in cherry next.
