How long does it take to carve a fan?
That’s the question. How long does it take to carve a fan, the type you might see on a high or low boy (chest on chest or dressing table). Well, the simple truth is, probably, a couple of hours. But the reality is that, unless you are a “constant carver”, it’s going to take considerably more time than that.
Carving is a skill and skills have to be practiced. The carving of a simple fan might take two hours. But getting “prepped for it” might take twenty. Patience. Commitment. Persistence. If these things are not a part of your “kit”, stick to bird houses.
