what kind of wood did you use? Cottonwood bark is both soft and light VERY easy to carve without slaying your fingers excellent carving for younger carvers to practice on to get used to whittling. really awesome instructable!

très bien

Oui pour commencer c'est très bien, c'est rapide, il faut y aller doucement sur les pattes de la tortue pour ne pas les casser.

Yes to begin it's fine, it's fast, you have to go easy on the legs of the turtle not to break them.

looks good.. great job
