Introduction: Wood Spirit Carving Tutorial I Easy Wood Carving Project for Your Quarantine
Coronavirus 2019 caught us flat-footed.
Most of the countries are facing quarantine. My hubby and I are on total lockdown.
What we're doing now, we carve a lot.
We're happy to share with you the wood spirit we made out of wood recently. Hopefully, you'd love it.
Moreover, I'm hoping you stay safe.
Make sure to isolate yourself not to spread the virus (as it could be "invisible" in most cases) and not to get infected.
Social distancing and hobbies will help us to get through it.
So, what tools do you need for that:
- some wood, better take basswood, it's easy to work with. 4'' x 2'' would work well
- V-profile palm chisel
- Compact chisel
- Detail knife
We use BeaverCraft tools because they are durable and razor-sharp. Before you start, make sure to wrap your fingers with a safety tap.
Step 1: Do Some Mark Up
Cut the wooden blank following the lines using the detail knife. Draw a wood spirit hat and carve it all around using a Compact chisel
Step 2: Drawing Part
Step 3: Face Job
Step 4: Work It Out With the Knife
Add some shape to the wood spirit with the help of the detail knife. Carve the drawn line of the hat
Step 5: Eyes and Beard
Step 6: Finishing Touches
Step 7: Wood Spirit Is Done
Overall it was fun to carve a wood spirit.
It helped a lot to relax a little and get out of the annoying thoughts.
Hope you enjoyed my Instructable.
Have fun carving your wood spirit and stay safe.
All the best to you and your loved ones.
