I recently carved out a few gifts for my family in order to bring them home with me when I visited them for a few weeks last month.
Both projects are re-imagined versions of projects that I have previously made, and that with a bit of digging you could find in the pictures found back months, even years ago, on this blog.
Without further ado
I’m never patient enough at the beginning of a project. This one, for instance, was entirely freehand – you can tell by the vastly different sizes in the chain links that spacial perception without the use of instruments is not my specialty. Regardless, I thought it was a pretty fun project and I think my sister and her family loved it!
For my second project I chose to do a more advanced form of one of my first ever carving projects, the “ball in a box.” Whenever I am in the process of carving one of these, inevitably one of my friends will ask me what I am carving and I will matter of factually respond: “A ball in a box.” What follows is nearly always an easy joke on my sexuality, but you can’t change a name – tell that to Snoop Lion.
This one was Ball in a Box version 2.0 AKA “Balls in a Box. ”
All around, they seemed well received! Which means it’s on to finding a new muse for my next project!.
