I’m about to head out to Seattle, and for my cousin I decided to carve a little piece highlighting our baseball teams. I took a piece of basswood, carved it out and then made the cut with a jigsaw. It was tricky because I needed to make it in one cut so the ridges would align (look above). I finished it with polyurethane and beeswax. I pleasure to carve and it turned out great.
My name’s Matthew, and I’m a 15 year old interested in woodworking. I didn’t get into shop at school, so I took advantage of my dads’ shop in the basement. I sure hope you enjoy my projects!
