Wood and fruit carving - A Beginning April 2011

Interest in carving began with JY carving an orange peel into a replica of the carved wooden shields by the indigenous people of Sarawak. We got ourselves a set of carving tools from a bookshop in PJ Old Town for future carving projects.
Trying out the carving tools in Tanjong Tokong beach, a short walk from the B&B we stayed in Penang. The tools could not cut through the wood, so I guess it could only be used for fruit carving.
Back in Port Dickson, 2 weeks later, Dear Hubby started the kids on preparing scrap wood by sanding the wood down with sandpaper.
