    Ian, I think they are great, all of them. I can't wait for my patterns to arrive so I can get started on my set.
    I have two people I will be making the pig for, my sister and my best friend are both born in the year of the pig.
    Will you be mounting them on the stands as show on the website? I'm hoping I can use the pig patterns to make plaques, I would like to add a scroll showing what it means to be born in the year of the pig.
    Thanks for sharing

      Nice. I notice a flower-like pattern in most. Is there some significance to that or just something to kind of tie them all together.

          Ian, I love them!! I made the rooster a couple years ago. But the whole set it just awesome!! It's really hard to pick a favorite, but I'm really liking that snake. And I like the rat you posted earlier. Now what are you going to do with these?? Great job!!

              Thanks Cathy. At some stage, later in the year I'll try to sell some, Cathy. I was going to put stands on some and maybe try some with backers on them to hang.

              Some are staying here - the horse and the pig are Sue and myself's signs - and some will be presents for family ...

              They're fun and quick to do - and I found them good practice for doing long smooth curves ...

                Thanks Mike - I'm afraid I don't know of any significance to the flower, except as you say to tie the designs together .. I was cutting better at cutting small cirles by the time I'd finished them all though ..

                  Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                  Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                  Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                  My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                  I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                  Was it a good idea.....?...

                  Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                  The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
