  • Surplus Wood

    Many of us that have been carving for years have discovered chunks of very usable wood in the corner of our shop, or "out back." It's time to start a process to get the wood we know we'll never get around to, into the hands of those who would like to. Here are two nice pieces of Cypress Knee. I have one that is still "in process," but these are unlikely to get carved by me. One is 26 inches tall with some interesting bumps. The other is 12 inches tall with a small "companion knee." I also have the fine book by Carol Jean Boyd on "Carving Cypress Knees." These are available to someone who already carves knees, or someone seriously interested in trying it. They are not available to one who just wants to re-sell at a profit. They may be free, including shipping. PM me if you're interested.

    Next; Cottonwood Bark

    Those are nice looking pieces, I hope some one takes you up on the generous offer. A little out of my wellhouse, but interesting all the same.

      I agree - it's a very generous offer. I have one sitting near my workbench for the past 4-5 years that a friend gave me. Still haven't figured out what to do with it.

        Sappy, Claude, others - If you get a chance, look at "Carving Cypress Knees" by Carole Jean Boyd (published by our host Fox Chapel). It might inspire you.

          That is a great idea, and a generous offer. I often have wood I mill that I don't know what to do with.

            Here is another offer of usable wood - two chunks of Cottonwood Bark. The metal rule in the photo is 15" long. PM me if you would like to have them.
