''Bosting' is an important concept in woodcarving, and probably the more challenging aspect. It's more than 'roughing out' and, if we get it right, subsequent modelling and details will fall into place...

What species of wood are you carving. It appears to be a rather soft wood with a grain structure that resembles Philippians Mahogany.

Chris, thank you for these "step-by-step" short video series. For beginners without formal training, these are invaluable. I already have a "feel" for what is supposed to happen in the process, the timing, etc. Huge leap in confidence from watching these. It is the "missing piece" that books leave us with (I own all your books).
