Heres my first real 'kin of the season.
Bat Cave is a particulary favorite pattern, due to its being initially released on my birthday in the year when I joined the site's forums.
Also it was the first year I paid for my own membership!
It was carved due to a huge molding soft spot. (it was for the church carving party I'm hosting, but thought "I am NOT
wasting a 'kin").
So heres the carve, it was very tough to carve since I couldn't gut with the gutter. When I tried I blew a hole in the spot where the mold had softened the wall.
Needless to say I will be carving this again. Too many mistakes for my liking.
