• From Ronald Tatman on Carving a Grapevine Swag - Episode 2

    I have enjoyed this project. The corrections and adjustments are real. Many of the described techniques apply to other endeavors and remind me of ways that I could have improved past projects. There will always be future projects

  • From Werner Kroebig on Carving a Christmas Star

    We are going on a long RV trip this summer. I have downloaded several lessons and started resawing wood and pre-cutting shapes so I can carve while in the outdoors. I have a set up that I can clamp to a picnic table to hold the carving firm. Lots of golf grip tape and acker boards. Still experimenting with the best solvent to bring with me. Looking forward to some relaxing carving in the great outdoors. I hope the trees will be happy that I am turning their cousins into beautiful art.

      Hi Rick,
      This is going to be a 4-episode lesson and is in the process of being added over the next 3 weeks. Each Wednesday evening a new episode is added until the complete lesson is added.

      I try to get that finish with carving tools, but sometimes you may need to use sandpaper. Just be careful to not sand away the fine details. Also make sure you use sandpaper that doesn't leave bits of grit in the wood (Mirka is a great one that does not leave grit), or if you decide to carve on the surface again your tools will get dull quickly.
