I have been working using your book , I am at the beginning of chapter 5. I ran out of bass so i am using Mahogany,so for it's OK , should i stay with the book ?
Just watched JoJo and her spoon carving on twitch .... can't seem to get on they chat room there so just decided to use this one here ... wondered how you would react each time she turned the knife edge toward herself! Have watched lot of English spoon carvers and most use their bodies as anchor points ... if any of your students want to do spoons, hook knives are sold where ever horse shooing tools are sold ... I learned years ago when shoeing my horse herd ... they are used in cutting bars and trimming frogs in bottom of horses' hooves. JoJo is a gem, should have her back on again .... thanks for the livestreming ...rmh (Texas Hill Country)
I have had so much fun carving this and have learned tons. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
I'm so glad to hear that! Happy to share!
You are awesome!
Very interesting. Curving the leaves and obtaining depth seems to be working. Also an effective demonstration of lay out and the use of the mallet and tools. Glad I stayed up to watch this lesson.
I'm glad you enjoyed this lesson! It's a challenge to design it as you go.
