I love the wood sprite to I know trees have some kind of spirite in them when I touch one I can feel it old souls trees are
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.-henry David Thoreau

Here is another wood spirit that I found last night.

I have a .pdf with instructions for making each cut.  Let me know if you would like a copy.

Very nice exercise and one I should practice myself.  If your offer of sending that those .pdf instructions still holds, I'd welcome a copy.

Thanks for posting this.

Nice job for sure, guess i need to work on my carving skills, Muscle memory is what's needed for carving & cutting notches in wood. Thanks for the reminder and giving me something else... to do in camp.

I've done a little carving on my own, took one free class but never went back. Here is my first and second wood spirit i ever did. I hope to one day carve the wood spirit on a walking stick then leave it along the trail for someone to find.

Thank you ...it's really not that hard when you follow along with a how to video. Then after a while you can do them on your own. This is my first attempt, big difference from the second one pictured above.
