Weekend Eye Candy - Woody Edition

Another material I'd like to mix with my silver. I have a lovely bit of wood that I carved years ago just sitting on my bench. I meant to turn it into a key chain, but never got around to it. It was made in a really interesting class taken in the backyard of a shop in Venice california. The Sensei (teacher) was a master carver from Japan and we were able to use his saber like knives to shape our wood. He's not there anymore. Shame. I'd love to try my hand at the art of Japanese whittling again.
