A few of my carvings. Material is European Boxwood, mostly left in its original colour. Only the Duyfken FH is stained and the Royal Caroline FH is gold leafed (trial piece for leafing, probably the last one of that). I am using a Micromotor - a special name for a rotary tool with wide rpm range, low revs and high torque. And also some knife blade and chisels as well. For finishing sanding and mostly scraping is used.

I was struggling a bit with attachments sizes so I had to push the resolutions down a lot.DSC_0117 s.jpg001 s (2).jpg003 s (4).jpg005 s (3).jpgDSC_0097 s.jpg006 s (2).jpg005 s.jpg006 s.jpgDSC_1865 s.jpgDSC_1927 s.jpgDSC_1989 s.jpgDSC_1990 s.jpg006 s.jpg014 s.jpgDSC_1988 s.jpg024 s.jpg295 s.jpgBellona 6.jpgBellona 5.jpg

Two small intermittent projects which I made during the time I was building Trieste - of course figure heads this time as well, L'Artesien and Goteborg.

Thanks, Gents!
I did not give up carving )):-, just working on the hull of Sovereign at the moment. It has to be planked before I know the sizes of the carvings (will be a few hundred) so I can continue carving there. I started on the figure head already but I work on this only in the Maritime Museum while volunteering there.
