Hand carving in walnut / cherry?
Carving is my new segway in furniture making.
My wife says my next project is a small sitting bench for the living room. I'm in early planning stage, but am pretty sure it will primarily be in walnut. I may inlay some cherry, or combine the two in other ways.
I'd also like to incorporate some limited chip and/or relief carving. Is it crazy to think carving is reasonably doable in these woods?
