  • Small statuette

    Ok, so i'm not a complete beginner, but i've only really used pine.

    I'm looking to carve a christmas gift for my mom in the form of a statuette. in a deep brown shade. I have no idea what hard woods of 'hazlenut-shell' color will be suitable.

    any advice on which woods and at what price they are found would be much appreciated. If you could also say how easily available they are i would be indebted to you.

    [glow=red,2,300][shadow=red,left,300][move]THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! [/move][/shadow][/glow]

    Forgot to add, this statuette will be about half a meter tall and 20-30 centimeteres across in a swan-like shape.

      I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

      I Use clear removable contact paper (shelf liner) on the wood and...

      I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.

      The good thing is that while I had my saw blade off I cleaned it sprayed Crud cutter on it let it sit then wiped it off with a skotchbright...
