      Nicely done, thank you for sharing. I will direct some new carvers to it.

          A simple design such as these flowers is a good way to start relief carving. However, it is misleading to imply this was done in a few minutes. The highly speeded up or skipped phases of this carving keep the video within the attention span of some beginners, but leave out important information. Why no narration? No info on tools being used?

              This was a highlight video, not instructional. It took me between 10-15 hours. I find that instructional videos take an enormous amount of time and I just don't have the following on YouTube in order to justify it. I also don't feel like I am good enough or have enough professional experience to teach others how it should be done. I am self taught so many of my methods may not be the "text book right" way of doing things. If people voice there interest in instructional videos I would be more than happy to make one though and more in the future!

                That's a great carving, and I enjoyed the highlight video. I, too, think that an instructional video would be helpful. I do know, however, how long those can take. I did a little figure carving picture tutorial, and that took several hours. Definitely a labor of love.

                One thing I've noticed about wood carvers is that most (and I'm certainly one of them) aren't really interested in the "text book right" way of doing things. We like to see stuff that works. I suspect most of us are self-taught, picking up ideas here and there, and working things out as we go along. I'm not sure that there even is a "text book right" way of doing a lot of the stuff we do. A big part of what I get from watching videos is learning new ways to do things.

                Anyway, love the carving and the video. And I'd definitely be interested if you do an instructional video.

                  The highlight video reminded me of a discussion topic in the past: https://forum.woodcarvingillustrated...arving-project
                  IMO a highlight video can only show what is possible, A manual skill can only be learned by actually doing it. Lately I have watched a video of Simone Biles (female gymnast) doing a "triple double" on the floor exercise. I am no closer to performing a "triple double" than I was last week, but I can see it is possible. I can watch a video of someone riding a bicycle, but I can't do it until I get on a bike. Let's not overestimate the value of videos to the hobby of woodcarving..

                    JMischel,

                    Yes I too am one of those carvers, I definitely agree with you there. Thank you for the kind words!

                      No disrespect, I'm not trying to overestimate the value of woodcarving videos. I was simply just posting a unique video to show my journey from start to finish. I thought fellow carvers would enjoy seeing the transformation. There's not a whole lot of carvers using traditional gouges out there posting videos on YouTube anymore. When they do post they want money for people to view them. I just simply thought it was a unique video to share with the carving community.

                        You did not assume any purpose for your video other than what you stated above. I was referring to those who advise beginning carvers to watch videos to develop their carving skills. I agree completely with your desire to share your carving experiences with others.

                          Thanks everyone for the kind words! Again, if anyone would be interested in instructional videos let me know. I would love to do them if I knew people were interested!
