Mrs. May, you do great carvings. I have watched many of your videos, but this is the first one where you have worn this type of a carving glove. Could you tell me where you got it. It looks so much more comfortable then the ones I ware.
Hi Jerry, Thank you! Believe it or not I think I found them at Harbour Freight Tools. The ones with a pad along the side of the hands are best, as they can add cushion. Bicycle gloves or weight lifting gloves generally work well. These are mechanics gloves and actually a bit bulky and sometimes get in the way.
hay mary, nice work
I just wanted you to know how much you are helping me. I am beginning with carving, and your brief videos have encouraged me to join your wood carving school, so that I can get through my class this semester in wood carving! I am thrilled to have found you, and you are going to help me get an A this semester and I really appreciate your giving me the chance to learn from you! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Thank you! I’m so glad you are enjoying the school!
