Your art is really good!  Hope you get better.  We could debate the method, but what the mind is able to transfer to the medium is the art.  Lots of philosophy involved in the  dilemma!

Once a hand-carver always a hand-carver, power carving tools have a totally different vibe (literally), so, I concur regarding switching to rotary power carving, and when my time comes I too would rather put away my gouges than switch to power, 'though I believe the Inuit had a saying , which goes 'when your teeth are gone, learn to like mush...' :-)

Do your comments mean the crappie is totally knife carved?

Anyone else think it is funny he uses BASSwood to carve a crappie?

Nice work, love it!

Wow, much respect! I absolutely love knife-carving and am never without a pocket knife and carving project in my work bag and/or glove box but I have found palm chisels and bench gouges save me hours of work in both roughing out and fine carving. Have you considered trying a v-tool and shallow gouge in addition to the knives?

That carving is really lovely, I keep seeing something new in it; what timber is the base made from?

Carved a lot of decoys, but never any fish. Great Job! John
