The sculptures are amazing, so in curiosity I looked up the wood species to see how it held together in such a delicate form. The California Bay Laurel is a highly sought after hardwood with many workability options.

It can be shaped into amazing things.

Was expecting this. Was pleasantly surprised.

Hand drill, keyhole saw, microplane and sandpaper only.
That's not carving.
I'll be quiet now.

Wood is such a remarkably versatile and beautiful material.. I've often thought that it would seem miraculous if it were something someone had invented, rather than a nearly ubiquitous feature of the world around us (or most of us anyway..)
