  • Effort of beginning carver

    My frien's second only to completing a carving myself ~ I get the greatest pleasure in helping someone else venture into woodcarving and do an excellent job on their own. A few years ago my cousin, Ila Kay, decided that she wanted to do some carving and asked me to help.


    Yesterday she completed her second woodcarving ~ both are crosses intended as gifts for relatives. I took her unpainted cross to the woodcarving meeting last Friday. We were both complimented when the carvers there assumed that I had done the carving. I am very proud of her and looking forward to assisting with her third effort.

    The first photo is Ila Kay's first cross carving, the second is the start of her next cross and the third photo is her effort completed yesterday. The final photo is my cross finished in 2012 that she used as an example.

      Excellent examples for a budding carver. Obviously she listens well and you instruct well. Congratulations to you both.

          I'm a retired botany prof. Tell her for me that those flowers are _real_. In life, they are never absolutely symmetrical. Plus, they reveal the hand carving technique. Good.

              All three crosses are done very well...nicely carved and painted. I especially like the way the wood is textured on the crosses.

                  I will copy the comments and send them to Ila Kay. She is having the new carver's worries, "Is it really OK? Am I doing this right?", etc. I thank all of you on her, and my, behalf. I must say that I am right proud of her.

                    Many years ago a bird carving instructor constantly called out as we roughed in a bird, "Avoid symmetry! Nature does not do that." I had ila kay draw in the flower by hand without a reference. Glad it worked.

                          Paul, it is nice that a beginner has such a successful project. It should keep her inspired to keep carving. Well done...........Tom

                              Paul she has nothing to worry about, just reassure her, mistakes at times can be a good thing! She has done very good under your tutelage.
