If you run out of ideas of what to carve you could carve me a super awesome neckerchief. I always wanted one of those when I was in scouts. Or maybe you could carve me a life-size wooden statue of Ryan Dovre that I could put in my yard. :) Good luck and wear thick gloves. I want to see all ten digits when I come to pick up my statue. ;)
sounds like a good hobby to try. there has to be a lot of people over there who could show you how to do things and give you ideas.
