Haven’t had a chance to blog yet since finishing a “Fundamentals of Woodcarving” class at Marc Adams School of Woodworking in Indianapolis, IN.
These classes are always great fun – for both students and teacher. Because it is 5 days, you really get to know each other, and by the end of the week, you feel like family. So it is always sad when the classes end and everyone goes their separate ways. It would be fun to have a type of “family reunion” down the road, and see how much carvings have been done, and just see each other again.
It was fun trying to break the engineers from the micrometer carving, and talking about “carving down about 1/8 inch” – drove them nuts! It was all a lot of fun, and lots of learning and carving.
I filmed a few of the demos I did during the class and hope to get these videos up on the video site soon. 2 of them are of carving different types of linenfold.
I’ve taken some classes at Marc Adams (turning, cabinet making, marquetry), and I now want to explore the world of carving, something I’ve never done before. I’m a secretary by trade, so “about an 1/8th of an inch” suits me just fine!
I’m eagerly awaiting the release of the school schedule for 2013, and hopefully you’ll be teaching this course again. If so, I look forward to meeting you next year.

I am teaching this again next year, and also I will be teaching a 2 day weekend beginner class at Marc Adams in September. The new schedule for 2013 is up! Check out the “classes” at the top of this page and the link should take you there. If not, let me know.
