  • ~~~ Sugar Pine ~~~

    Received a text from a lady who’s grandfather was a blind woodcarver. Although he had passed 11 years ago, his granddaughter had kept his wood box and was ready to let it go. Not wanting to use as kindling, it was offered to me. His box contained mostly all Sugar Pine. What a gem of a find for me. Sugar Pine is hard to find.

    Looks like some nice, clear, straight grained wood.

            Sweet! I acquired some stock of what I believe is sugar pine, at a garage sale. Yours looks the same. I really enjoyed carving it and it smelled wonderful. Good luck to you.

              Make notes of the ring count per inch. You will learn that there is good, better and best.
              In the conifers I carve, 15-30 is best.

                Never carved sugar pine but have read it is an excellent carving wood. You really have got a nice lot.

                  Nice selection of wood. It is great that she past it on. Look forward to seeing what it becomes.

                    Nice to see it didn't end up as fire wood. Happy carving. !!!!

                      Carved first block of my sugar pine stash. This snowman is 9” x 4” x 4”. Finished in acrylics. Hadn’t carved sugar pine in a long while and soon remembered that one must shave the wood off. Large cut removal tends to chip and splinter... great fun to do....

                        Elegant lesson in carving conifer wood. Great design posture, too. I don't think we saw more than 3 days of good "snow-man snow" this winter past.

                              Well done little snow dude! I think the finishing really sets it apart. Love the scarf and the texturing in the arms.
