Wood carving is a nice, relaxing hobby. I did it for years until the horses, Acreage and other things took up my time.
I found the free plans for this vice on the internet. It cost a total of $20 plus change. I was not sure if it would be sturdy enough, but my fears were unfounded. It can be rotated to any angle and any position.
Carving is not that hard,. You just picture the bird inside the block and remove the wood that does not belong!
