    So for my next trick ….:p Now that I have got the carving bug I am looking for anything made out of wood that I can transform in to something different....the other day after the eagle head handle left the nest I roamed around the house looking for something to curve my addiction. :cool: found a stick! well a old broom handle to be more precise. and decided ...hey wait a minute....that looks like a walking stick! yeahhhh and so the carving begins! I sat down with no idea of what to carve. and as it went along it started to take shape. so far this how far I got....if you guys have any suggestions for the rest let me know...the tip and the end are blanc canvas at the moment....so shoot! :D ( im going to need a new Dremel after this)

    You sat down and did this much in one sitting!? Great, another one of my hobbies I get to feel like a total amateur about. : )

    That's awesome Peter. I've only been carving "little people", flat plane style mostly. Though I am thinking about getting a flexible shaft rotary tool to play around with some power carving. I've seen some cheapie imports for sale. I won't invest in a Foredom just yet.

    Todd ….:oops: I forgot to mention that this about 3 days on and off worth of work...lol as for the flex shaft Canadian tire has a no brand name for 30.00 bucks that what I use with my tired Dremel. got the shaft about 3 years ago and just starting now to act weird. but great starting point. the one thing I did realise is not to go cheap on the cutting bits, they burn out in the first few mins of use.
