The package was almost too pretty to open but I finally settled on taking a picture before opening! The board is fabulous and will help me re-fresh myself before starting on a project I have. I'm very very pleased

Hi I enjoyed the practice board. If I knew the price was going down, I would of ordered 1st & 2nd stages together instead of just 1st stage.

Chip carved wooden boxes

When I was a kid, I had a passion for…music. Learning music and playing instruments was my life and I thought of nothing else until all my beloved teachers left, one by one, within a year, and I was left without any musical role models. I felt sad and a little betrayed; I lost all interest in music and refused to play. For a while, I didn’t have anything I loved doing, but one day, my very concerned mom came home with an application to a fine-arts school, and I thought – “why not give it a shot?”
I’m so glad I did because that’s where I found my true passion – creating things with my hands. Now, wood carving is my life. I still love music and always play my favorite tunes while drawing and planning out new patterns – beautiful melodies inspire me as I go and remind me of special and important moments in my life, which are a big part of my designs. When I’m carving, I like to work in silence – the process becomes a kind of meditation and a path to self-reflection and introspection – an activity that brings peace and satisfaction to my introverted nature.
My designs are a tribute to my childhood home – a cozy wooden house – and to all the happy memories from that time. I am often inspired by beautiful landscapes and nature, film, books, and, of course, music. As an artist, I always strive to create something original, something that is reflective of my experience, something authentic; that means that I sometimes I break rules and throw conventions of the craft out the window, but that’s what makes my work true, real, and mine. I hope that my work can be yours too. Now, go on, browse my creations and find something you love!
