well here is my first attempt at bone carving. i wasn't worried about making it perfect and I'm not done with it....it was more of an learn how exercise and what tools work best project..its about 1 inch tall. got the bone from a pet store....its not a good photo, but you can see where i left off at least.

That looks like it belongs in a museum. Really nice finish on it. Is that a pretty hard wood?
