New Here, Thought I'd Say Hello...

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

My name is Nestor and I live in Lakeland, Florida. I'm pretty new to this fantastic hobby (started about 8 weeks ago) and I only wish I had started carving 40 years ago. Truth is, I never thought I could do it. I was affraid to try.

Well, here I am today, carving, learning and enjoying every minute of it. In doing research, I came across Janel's website and fell in love with her carvings and Netsuke in general.

I've made some tools, of which I will post photos of in another thread to have critiqued.

In the mean time, here are a couple of photos of my first carvings. I know they're kind of rough looking but hey, I had to start somewhere...

Thank you Laura. They seem to be a favorite amongst those who see them, as I've been asked to make these little birds for many of my friends. They're always good for a smile and an Awwww!
