Always been amazed by those folks who can look at a block of wood and see a figure like that in there. Kinda like the the old-world sculptor when asked how a man can carve an elephant. He responded, "Is easy to carve elephant. You get very large piece of stone and chip away all that which does not look like elephant."

And for those folks I guess it's just that simple.

Me, I can take fairly large tree and cut away all that which does not look like firewood.

Yeah, off and on for the last couple years I've tinkered with carving in basswood and cottonwood bark, but still not enough time to get very good at it. Back in High School I took several years of ceramic classes. That's much easier, if you want a nose on your project, grab a chunk of clay and slap a nose on it. With wood, you have to remove wood that's not needed and once you take it away you can add it back on. It's enjoyable but quite a challenge.

Here's another one I like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-uRYZLDKqs
