Works in progress...

I'm quietly working in my studio this summer. It feels good to have some uninterrupted time. I won't be traveling to any craft shows but instead traveling a bit for fun!  Here are a few works in progress.

What a treat to see your workspace. I was working up to asking about how you carve,(like, whittle, dremel, chisel, etc.)-- it looks like you do it all! It's so good to know you have lots of studio time -- many wonderful things will emerge.

Thanks for the comment P! I use a bandsaw to rough out the wood and then a belt sander and foredom to shape with. Recently i splurged on a spindle sander and that is wonderful. After thats all done I sand by hand and do a little detailing with chisels and scroll saw. Since I like to add details with mica, metal and paint the power tools are a big time saver with the carving phase.
It still seems like I'm really slow though!
