  • From Anita Hales on Preparing to Carve

    Woods that are available locally are red and yellow cedar, red alder, hemlock and spruce. I think yellow cedar would be comparable to basswood. Is that correct?

      Hi Anita,
      I'm not sure about yellow cedar, as I have not carved in that before. Anybody else? This might be a good question for the forum also.

  • From Robert Graham on Preparing to Carve

    I got a lot of helpful information. I'm sure it will help with aiding me in my journey into wood carving. I am a wood worker and want to reproduce some period pieces that require carving techniques to incorporate into them. It will give me a greater satisfaction and appreciation of what I am building.

  • From Wendy Owen on Starting to Carve - Beginner Lesson #2

    In answer to Geoff, jelutong seems to be Australia's answer to basswood, but you won't get it at just any timber supplier. check online. other woods recommended in Australia are huon pine (which is apparently not a pine) and Australian western red cedar. I've heard that merbau may carve like mahogany but I haven't tried it yet. It's available in many timber supply stores. Wendy

      Hi Cheryl,
      Sorry, but that seemed to slip through. I'm traveling at the moment, and when I have a chance, I will put that together. Sorry about that!
