Started yet again on another project this time another Walnut Claro. This one is one of the ones from Cook Woods. I'm starting to see some issues with carving down blocks that are only 4x4x4 into a bowl shaped object or cup shape object. Its a lot of material yes. How ever I'm considering going back to the 6x6x3's and working with those types of blanks since they might go easier on me since I'm getting the tennon and mortise practice down. I am still contemplating on when I should start on trying out on pens and what not. I'm a bit hesitant on that for some reason. I wasn't happy with the other two that I had made so I want to try again with this one. Now that I have the negative rakes on my tools it should be a lot easier to get a nice shape on the inside. I'm hoping that the tennon should be long enough for the hollowing process once I get to it. Here we go again. If anything at least I'm learning slowly but surely.
