  • Allen Goodman Roughouts

    Hi Everyone,

    I am brand new carver and I am happy to have found this forum. I have been watching a bunch of youtube videos and, like everyone I'm sure, have come across Gene Messer. He has a series on carving the Allen Goodman roughout that I would like to try, does anyone know where I can purchase a few?

    Thanks,
    Todd

    As far as I know the only way to get Allen Goodman roughouts is directly from him, but I've been trying to get a hold of him for months and get no response. I know several others have tried also with no luck.

        You may as well wait for the second coming of Christ. You'll get quicker satisfaction with that than getting a response from Mr. Goodman. Unless he's standing in front of your face he's unreachable. At least that's been my experience.

          Okay, I have to apologize here. Think this may have been a bit too harsh. I have had a lot of trouble trying to contact the man however.

            Allen has had some family issues over the past few years and has not been as involved with carving or knives. Hopefully he will be in a better situation and will start teaching again, but if you want a knife or rough out, you would have to catch him at a seminar or a show.

              You could just get a 1.5 x 1.5 x 5 inch block of basswood (or a 2 x 2 x 7 block), and sketch the roughout on the block, then begin carving. Play the first few seconds or so of Gene's video, stop the action and use that view to sketch the outline on the block.

              I think this is the video you mentioned earlier: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19g1QqWoWtQ

                Heinecke Wood is a great source of wood and has a list of roughout suppliers, Dale green seems to have a good selection.

                  Claude has the right idea. I'd add to his suggestion by saying that after pausing the video at the proper spot, you can take a screen shot and once printed, have your own pattern. Sometimes you may have to make a minor adjustment for the angle the item is held or for shadows in bad light but it's a lot easier for us none-artistic guys that don't know which end of the pencil to hold.
