Hi all, well since my move to the island i have really been wanting to carve but the resources are very limited here and all plant life is protected so i cant cut it down or carve it once dead, so I found some treated pine logs in a garden and stole some crappy cheap straight chisels from the maintenance dept and started carving.. It's a little Bosko-esque i know, but anyways.. this is the last 3 days progress doing a few hours after work after work....
