fantastic , can't wait to do one myself.
Mary, I would need an 'S' and an 'H.' where should I go for those letters?
Go to a word processor, find a favorite font, print it out at the size you want. Adjust it to make it your own and soften the serifs, and design your own vines! Customize your own style of letters. Hope this helps!
This is a beautiful carving. Do you have templates for the entire alphabet?
Sorry, but I do not. That would be 26 templates! I suggest printing out a favorite font very large, make it your own by softening any pointed serifs, and draw your own style of vine. Then it will be your own letter design! Enjoy!
What exactly is nice blue & where do you buy it ? Glad you left it in the lesson .
I'm not sure where you heard "nice blue", but I simply used regular wood glue. I'll have to review that and see what might have sounded like that. I may have mumbled something incoherent...
Always great to view your carving sessions. Although it pains me to see you facing obstacles with tape holding, wood grain issues, and wood flaws, I'm glad you don't edit those out these challenges. It gives me reassurance that even when the best carvers experience problems and don't become discouraged, I too can press forward and see the carving through. Thank you for your perseverance and encouragement to us beginners, it keeps me inspired to keep pressing on.
Thanks Kevin! Keep pressing on 🙂
