Love the linked rings and hollow spiral.  My husband's grandfather made a chain of linked rings and it's a family heirloom now.  Keep up with your work!

Thanks.  I'm working on the caged ball with the linked rings attached.  I hope it comes out ok.

Hi pinokeeo! Long time no see!
Nice work; your woodwork is always so lovely. Are you using a power tool or actual sculpting knives or what-have-you? (I don't know the terminology. Smiley)

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til further notice! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, for the coming months. Almost done with library school! That sums things up for now.

Hi Calluna,

These carvings were all done with a bench knife (standard carving knife), but now I'm practicing with a dremel. 

In the jewelry section I have a couple of ivory pieces that I just carved and they were done with the dremel.  You can see them here.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=405803.new#new
