        Sure.
        I live in a brown but snowy Stockholm, Sweden, and work as a woodworker/furniture maker. Discovered that I'm a honing freakazoid in school and i own a small collection of synthetic and natural stones and bought and homemade carving tools.
        Not the most skilled and seasoned carver around, but I love it and it's fun and that's what life's about yeah?

        I'm here to learn and to share what I know.

        I could travel to Arkansas just to get stones.

            "​Love to carve and I love to sharpen" aren't prerequisites to be a part of this site, but they do help. I believe your carvings show the sharpness of your tools. Glad you're here, will be looking for more stuff and info from you.

              Hello,
              Love the forum. The Escher’s are fantastic as are
              many other artistic wood carvings. Due to the current climate and retirement, I have returned back to my roots when I was a kid in college and sold wood clocks at the NY Binghamton Craft show. Hopefully, my art is evolving as some of the stuff I sold was downright awful.
              Looking for some advice on a relief in progress which is a discard piece of Spalted Maple from another project (Modern Grandfather clock) which I will get back to when the weather warms.
              Wanting some suggestions on depth and width of relief work around the village depicted on both sides. I love magical and surreal art so enjoying putting this together this winter.
              Thanks, Joe

                    I am also intrigued by your projects, Ank. The burl woods will require very sharp tools. I have come to the view that intricate reliefs are not compatible with figured wood. Each is nice to look at, but they compete for your attention.

                        Welcome Ank, Check out Nancy Tuttle’s work, Might be right up your alley. Looks like you are have lots of fun, and that is what carving is all about in my opinion. Tom
