Duplicating Carvings

A nice little task fell my way today. 

These are my favourite sorts of projects, quick, not too hard but have a challenging element.

I'm handed 3 small carvings from a chess set with the instruction to replicate each one. This is the first time I've tried to copy a carving, so I loved the challenge and the size of it meant I could return to my whittling roots! 

So how did it go?

Not bad! 

Colour matching was a little tricky but here's how the look!

All 3 carved to match the originals
