I know, but how were you able to carve it? What tools did you use?

Sorry, I didn't understand what you mean. I mainly use this one: [link]
Split the pit in its two halfs and peel all around. After seconds it starts to get kind of a brown. I let it totally dry for approx one week.
Then I grind it to be able to draw on it. Then the fun part can begin.

I've always wnted to ask you something: Do you carve the avocado pit when is green and soft or do you wait until is dry and hard?

I split it into it's two halfs, then peel it all around (also the flat side) and wait approx. one week before carving.
