Those are very nice. I like the angel. Isn't holly a hard wood, difficult to carve with a knife?

Yes Holly is quite difficult to carve.
However I made a mistake. The angle is aspen.

joe carving is real easy. i do a lot of it. most important to have your blade stupidly sharp.
then you get your piece of wood thats close to the right size.

then you cut away everything that doesn't look like what your wanting to carve.

its just as easy as that.

My one and only (but hopefully not last) woodcarving was learned by e-mail and snail mail from a very gifted gent now deceased. Two of his beautiful birds sit next to my adequate attempt at a Sanderling.

His instructions were "get the basic rough shape and then carve away everything that ain't what you want." It was interesting to keep adjusting my mental picture from gross to fine. It took a month or so of careful carving to come up with something I called passable. He said it was a fine first effort. He was being kind and I loved him for that.

It was also hysterical to me to be learning how to handle a knife from a guy almost 20 years my senior by mail and do it without a finger guard...he said the best way to learn to be careful was to cut yourself a few times. He said I could use the glove after I'd christened a practice piece or two. He also said not to go out and buy expensive tools until I knew that I wanted to do it onna regular basis. He said with "a good sharp pen knife, a blister sharp curved exacto blade" I was good to do what I "was fixin to learn."

Josephus (his handle among our little peer group) was a hoot and I miss him.

Aneee--hoo...pix of my little Sanderling who resides onna shelf in my front bathroom (wood unknown...he said basswood fuzzed and that he preferred a beginner learn on a semi-hardwood of some sort.)

Meant to add that I'm partial to snowmen and like the gnome looking fellas sitting next to Santa on the shelf.

You're carving legacies that could be passed on for generations to come.

just as a something fun to do while camping. i have gotten real good at making those little sailer men. now when we are camping around others,theres usually one character among the group. i do a quick little carving based on those little sailers of him to give as a memento of the trip.
i assume you know what i am talking about? little sailer charactors about 2-2.5 inches tall?
i always carry a handfull of pieces of wood cut 3x1.5x1.5 around
