  • Grandson's first relief carving

    We had our two oldest grandsond spend the night with us saturday night. Kaden, the 7 year old has really started to like to carve when he is over. He loves the Texas Star. We made him a boot jack, for his new cowboy boots, on saturday night. Sunday morning he wanted me to draw a star on a board so he could carve it. I was quite surprised at how well he did. below are some of the pictures of the progress and the final results, before we had a chance to put any finish on his star. He wanted to take it home with him, even though we did not get to add a finish to it.

    It took only about an hour an a half for him to do this. I am proud of him.

          Steve,
          You're a good grandpa. It's something you'll both remember. I have grand kids around the same age & they're becoming interested in carving. Lots of fun & good times.

            He did an amazing job! My son is 5 and I sure hope he is interested in carving like your grandson is.

              He is adorable and he looks so proud. I have 13 Grandchildren and one of my grandsons is learning to carve.

                In the third pic I noticed how he sure knows how to hold the tool properly.

                  thanks everyone. We spent a lot of time on technique. I think that is why he is liking it so much. The right technique shows results a little faster.

                      Start them young and they will be better than we ever thought about being. Great hobby for a kiddo...keep it up with him and you will both profit.

                        It is always good to see a new carver starting young.

                          Wow, that's amazing for a 7 year old! Kaden is going to be quite an excellent wood carver one day!

                            Kudos Gramps, and the same to the Grandson! It's good to see some younger folks taking an interest!

                              I have a grandson coming 10 who is interested in carving. Any suggestions as to what I can get him to carve? I have lots of wood and lots of carving tools, but at a loss as to where to start with him. Any suggstions are more than welcome.
