mistakes and how we can learn from them, keep going
hi again, well i now have about 5 videos up for the pineapple, but i made a mistake on the top which i mention on the video, but instead of try to redo the project, i decided it would be a good time to show folks how you can fix a mistake. if you have been woodcarving for any lenght of time you will make a mistake, i once did it with a santa , his boot and legs were in the wrong direction , i didnt notice it until i was almost done with it,, lol well i thought i will finish him anyway and then i will just sell it on ebay,,,, and guess what it sold, to my amazement, it was one of a kind who ever has it today, is enjoying it . it wasnt a waste but taught me to do things a little different, and same with the video,, so folks take heart,, dont be discouraged just keep on going,,, i will admit only a few never made it ,,,they made it to the wood pile to burn but at least i tried. i know how frustrating it can be to see your mistake at the moment you realized that you did it wrong, but keep at it ,, if it doesnt work out, then try it again,,, we alland mean all of us woodcarvers have been there and done that, so if your new ,, thats ok,, try it again or try to repair it, you be amazed at what you will learn from your mistakes, happy and safe carving , and remember your not the only one that make carving mistakes , arleen
