Thought I would do a little carving. This is for one of the family

My first carved letters. No finish as I will leave it up to them to finish or paint. Carved on a piece of recycled wood believed to be a mahogany.

Thanks guys just mention that the lettering is 2" tall just to give a scale to the piece. They liked it very much Doug. It came along just as I was about ready to have a go at letter carving, the best part is that all the letters used in the name are the easiest to do
