woodcarve 1 by ~woodcarve This woodcarving speaks for itself: the beautiful rendering of the deer in the forest coupled with the intricate details of the border is simply matchless. ( Featured by LabyrinthCreations )

Man, how did you learn to do this kind of stuff? I wish i could become your apprentice or something. I really wanna get started with chiseling and stuff instead of a dremel.

I learned it by doing it myself. I started with the wooden shoes. Then ten footwarmers as holyday work, followed by tabeltop and then woodcarve 1 when I was twenty one. So just start and be patient!

I love the attention to detail in this piece. What kind of wood did you use? I have been struggling to fn the right wood for my carvings so I never can finish one properly (hence none in my gallery).

woodcarve lists some good woods for carving the names are a little different in the states ,the oack is obvious oak , linde is linden " I don't think it grows here , but bass wood is the same I believe . An outstanding wood for carving ." Teak is good ,but hard on carving tools due to high silica content . Another outstanding wood for carving is mahogany .Just a few additional thoughts .

Thanks for the fav. and welcome to deviantart.

For woodcarve 1 I used oack but you can use many kinds of wood to carve. For excample good woods to carve are walnut( is my favorite because of the colour and the structure),oack (because of its durability and my feelings for the mighty oack), linde(Tilia)has a good structure, is easy to carve and is used verry much by professionals, teak, manny kinds of tropical wood. The most important thing to notice is that there is not a big difference in spring and summer structure in the piece of wood.

Nice photo's in your gallery.

This is beyond amazing. I don't think I've seen a carving this deep, with that much fine detail. Please document this amazing accomplishment some more. Was it all done as a single piece? I'm assuming it's oak, based on the type of the leaves. Did you use traditional or electric tools, a combination?

This is just amazing. All the details in this work are mindblowing and I can't imagine how patient you have to be to do this kind of work. May you say what did you use to carve this and how long did it take? Keep up the unbeliveably good work and have luck!

Thanks for your comment.

I used chisels for this just you can see in my gallery "elk in progres". To come on the right dept I used a brace. I will try to find old photo's from the beginning and show them in my gallery.

I have been busy with this for 10 year because after a few weeks it's getting bored becose the progres gose verry slow. During the time I have noticed every moment that I worked on it. Total ca. 350 real hours
