Cool New to the forum

I'm new to the carving world but what a place. I have never found something to be so relaxing.
Anyone ever carved into Cebil?? I did my research before carving and heard it was very difficult, tool dulling and frustrating. The rose posted to my username is what I am carving. Having a hard time getting it as smooth in the crevises as I would like. Any ideas????

Looks very hard, never tried to carve it myself. If you get a chance try carving some Cottonwood bark, very easy to carve and lots of fun! Welcome to the forum.

Nice job on the rose. With that highly figured wood I would try something smooth that would show it. welcome to the forum.
