    That's right...start with the inside first, then work the outside. Safer that way. Nice job!

    I agree with Kiteman. Don't worry about the English grammar.The way you carve, the pictures do most of the talking and the final product seals the deal. You just need to fill in the details. How fine a grade of sandpaper do you use. What did you use to finish it, oil or wax, etc.?

    The pictures are fine, but they would be easier to follow if you created a step-by-step instructable.
