From This to This.

The flower is finished and not as smooth as other pieces being produced but we move on to new projects when learning new hobbies. At the end I decided it needed some texture  somewhere in the background. Leichardt timber has been nice to carve and relatively easy to handle. The sanding is not as smooth as some pieces produced and I learnt to be softer when gouging and shaping in the beginning.
The next timber to try is Guava , a white timber with  lovely markings on the bark.
