Of course VM, but you must remember that he had wood lathes, chisels, various saws and so on. And vast experience. Walk before you can run. You are doing well. You may look into sourcing different coloured woods in order to get the colour to match the piece, such as yellow for a banana.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Winter Walks on deserted beaches may produce sand blasted drift wood sculptures.....
These can be polished with brown shoe polish to enhance their natural grain...........
Wooden table mats can be made heat resistant with polyurethane varnish.
Scrap wooden pallets are a useful source of material for garden fences. Sometimes these are protected with waste engine oil.
The Ships Chandler stocks various grades of wood preserving oil and varnish....
There is a skip hire contractor near me who offers free firewood from his skips used by building contractors.
This is a good scource of free 4 x 2 deal cut off lengths......

In The Days of School Science I learnt how to make artists charcoal sticks in a treacle tin....make your own Barbie Charcoal.
There must be a difference between wood and charcoal as a heat source for cooked meals.

Thanks Sinned, I am getting a few tools here there, and the experience will come just need time.

Thanks weeladdie18 for the helpful tips. I would love to get some drift wood but I live in Iowa, not to many beaches around here.

If you check out the local craft fairs and markets you may find other wood workers who re prepared to discuss
their skills with you....It really depends on the tools you prefer to use to shape your available source of wood
and the preservation techniques used on your craftsmanship.....There are many videos posted on the Internet

Tried my hand at 3d sawing, one way is a wolf howling and the other way a deer.

When I was in shop class in high school we sometimes work with Plexiglas. And as you know it leaves sharp edges and cutting debris on the piece. My shop teacher showed us a real neat trick, it is called annealing. When you are finished the cutting and want to clean up the edges and such grab a propane torch and pass the part near the flame but only long enough to soften the sharp corners and remove the debris. While the torch we had was feed by a giant gas bottle on the outside of the school you can buy propane torches at any hardware store or Wal-Marts. They are cheap.
