Hey all. I have an idea for a project that is carved in the round. The wood would need to take a fair amount of detail and be rather sturdy as it may be handled often.
It wouldn't need to have any color or figure, as that would not matter to the finished piece. I would consider material with light grain or color as bleaching might be a finishing option.
I'm primarily concerned with strength. The piece would be indoors. I was considering holly, but I just don't know.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for taking the time.
