  1. Hello all... As I said in my introductory post, I'm a complete beginner in carving.... but eager to experiment. I ordered some tagua nuts from eBay, and tried carving one. I cut it in half (snapping at least three blades of my hand saw... I need to get a band-saw), and improvised a design... just random flowing elements. Since it was the first time of working with this material, I didn't know what to expect... But in the end I'm happy with the results. I found the hardnes of the material pleasant... I did some experiemnts with alabaster found it too brittle (but is just an opinion, and may dapend from the fact that I'm an absolute beginner) I did some error here and there, and could not remove completely some scratches I did where the tool slipped away. Polishing was easier than expected. better resolution mages are at: http://cuntraria.wor...ant-birthday-1/ As usual, I end up taking the photos in a hurry, with poor results. Now the piece has reached its destination (it was a gift).. so no more photo opportunities :-( With the other half of the nut I'm not having much luck.. The inner, softer part is exposed, and is making the piece almost unusable... I started again freehanding a design, but i'm somehow disappointed so far... bah... I'll see where it will go.. if nothing else, it would have been some exercise... Comments are welcome ! Marco
