    Nice, i been carving wood for a while and a tip is to start with pink foam insulation. Doing that will gill you something to look at while carving the wood.

    Thanks!
    I made one today, but for step 3 i just drilled a hole thorugh it (carefully).
    And I didn't paint it well because I'm not arty!  Cheers from New Zealand
