I finished the Celtic/Scandanavian design in oak. Here are the final photos.
I’ve been spending much of my time editing and formatting videos for my new online school. So far I’ve got 10 videos projects with hopes of getting at least 20 by the time it is ready to go in July. The only ones I may not have fully edited are the ones I currently have DVDs for. They are long projects, and I just need to put the hours in for editing. They will be on the site eventually. If anybody has any requests of what instructional videos you want to have on the site, please give me feedback!
Here is a synopsis of videos I hope to have completed (please don’t hold me to it, but this is my goal):
Sharpening: curved gouges, v-chisel, veiner, spoon bent, back bent
Carving a donut (beginning project)
Carving a simple flower (beginning project)
Carving a 3-dimensional hand
Carving a celtic knot (2 different designs)
Carving a celtic creature
Carving an acanthus leaf on a turned post
Carving an acanthus leaf on a knee of a cabriole leg
Carving reeds on a leg
Carving egg and dart molding (2 different types of wood)
Carving a leaf molding
Carving a stylized corinthian capital
Carving the Camellia flower
Carving a Rosette
Longer videos to be edited:
Carving the ball and claw foot
Carving the concave newport shell
Carving the convex newport shell
Carving the McIntire Fruit Basket
As I said, any suggestions for ideas are very much welcomed. The avenues I can go down are endless with videos, but I really want to focus on what people are wanting to learn.
