So this is my little corner of the world. I'm here primarily as a woodcarver/worker, but my skills are no where near where I want them. What you see in my gallery is simply the journey I'm on to improve my ability while having fun.

I would like to thank you for the tutorials you made on how to make a wooden katana. I recently made one (i will eventually post it on my profile if I can find a decent camera) and you helped me a lot  for the pieces and techniques required. I still need a lot of improvement, but I couldn't have started without some sort of reference . Great work by the way :)
