Intro to carving - typical decorative relief carving for ship models

This is an intro to carving. Basic stuff with no fully round carving such as figureheads. This group area is set up for folks who have never tried carving before. Laser cut blanks are available from the NRG so everyone can compare notes and techniques while carving the same design.
