    Default "Gypsy" flower

    I'm going to try one of these today. Here's a vid on making them tough. Just fun and great knife practice.

    Good luck!

    They're fun to carve and easier than they look.

    Thanks for posting the video Dross.

    Does anyone have any info on the knife he is using to carve with? I haven't seen anything quite like it.

    I love carving these. Cedar is fun and easy to carve. Plus it smells great. I usually make these as gifts for ladies.

    In one of the comments on the YouTube post, someone asks, and he confirms, that he's using a one half of a pair of scissors...

    Just proves once more that talent trumps tools...
