This year's Christmas carving...

I went for a relief carving this year rather than a figure, cos relief carving is easier, and have made, on the one side, a Lonely Mountain, and on the other side, a dwarf

he tree was holly, so I've tried leaving the bark on the sides, although I'm not sure if it will fall off as the wood dries. It's quite a diddy little thing, only about an inch across, as the tree was pretty slender, and it does have a bit of an unintended curve to it that I should probably have tidied up if I hadn't decided to leave the bark on.

That's amazing. I particularly like the Lonely Mountain side. You've really caught the style of Tolkien's drawing.

I am very impressed (as well as jealous at your carving skills).

This is lovely! I like the curve of the wood, and the mountain scene is fantastic.

Lovely! I'd love to see a post sometime with all your Christmas-tree carvings together (whether in one picture or several.) I expect they're all packed away now, but if you aren't averse to the idea I'll try to remember to poke you about it next Christmas :-)
