My First Netsuke

Recommended Posts

Here is my first effort at doing a netsuke. The pattern is that of the Sleeping Dormouse in Peter Benson's book, The Art of Carving Netsuke. It is approximately 1.5" in diameter and carved from basswood. As with every time I try something new, I do it in the wood I'm most familiar with. I also carved this pattern in quilted maple, though it is smaller at 1" in diameter. When I get some photos of that, I'll post them.


All comments are welcome. I have the skin of a rhinoceros, so don't hold back.
