Tiny Wood Turtle

Title: Turtle
Wood Species: Basswood
Technique: Standard Carving using a knife
Finishing: None

I started this little turtle as a practise piece in carving in the round. It is not something I am very good at so I need as much practise as possible. During the carving of this piece I managed to cut off a front leg, a back leg, his tail, and a rather large part of the tip of my finger. Luckily the wood glued back well and the finger has healed, though there is a scar.

The finished piece is 1.5 " x 1.5" x 1" in total.
