Only 4 more days and I will be increasing the prices for my Online School of Traditional Woodcarving for the first time in 3 years. If you sign up before July 1, you can lock in at the current low rates, for as long as you remain a member.
Sign up HERE to see the different options.
Also, if you want to receive monthly newsletters keeping you up to date on future video lessons that will be added to my online school, carving tips and tricks, a free template every month, and class schedule – and a weekly newsletter announcing and describing the latest new video (every Wednesday evening), sign up HERE.
Here are a few of the more recent video lessons that have been added:
This lesson shows how to carve a traditional Trifid foot often seen on Queen Anne and Chippendale style chairs. This lesson is 1 episode and runs around 40 minutes. I show how to carve 2 different styles – one with a smooth web, and one with the defined “stocking” shape. You can view a short introduction video HERE.
Another very traditional detail for those who want to build period furniture – the Newport Flame Finial. This very symmetrical spiraling finial has some real challenges with grain – but it’s worth the effort! You can view a short introduction video HERE.
In this lesson, I show how to carve 2 beautiful flowers in 1/4″ shallow relief – the Lily and Rose. This is carved in Maple and I show how to create an illusion of much greater depth. You can view a short introduction video HERE.
Currently there are 91 unique lessons and 183 individual episodes available, with a new video added every week. Here is a list of all video lessons currently available to Premium Members.
If you are just starting out with woodcarving, there are 16 FREE videos available to get you started – how to sharpen gouges, basic carving cuts, clamping techniques, and several beginning lessons. But remember – if you wait until after July 1 to sign up as a Premium Member, you will be paying the new increased price.
Some very exciting projects are coming up over the next few months that will become lessons for my online school – Carving details for a Charleston Rice Bed, a Thomas Seymour style dresser leg with a ribbon and grape vine (with all the details), a Green Man, more details on the Philadelphia Highboy top (the only part I still need to add as a lesson is the center shell), and last, but not least – a pineapple applique. In between the larger, more involved lessons, I will be putting in some single-episode and easier projects. I don’t want to scare anyone away!
Happy Carving Everyone!
