              Learned a long time ago....people who are great at wood carving do not always have gadgets, lots of tools tech. and more.....being good as little to do with the tools at all. It is not about the tools at all.

                Most Pacific Northwest First Nations carvers use very few tools on a carving.

                    J. Yo,

                    Perhaps you miss judge the demographics of our group. We kind of embrace the old traditional ways of carving wood. We love a discussion about knives, gouges an chisels. Hell we can spend days just talking about wood.

                      It clearly was spam. The video was just a vehicle for holding our attention while plying us with unrelated advertising. The images were great, but most of the processes were speeded up and editing into short segments because the actual processes can be deadly dull and tedious. Yes, we love the look & feel of wood, but the video is not the same as working with the real thing!

                        If we were wood craftsmen then perhaps this video would be ok. But we are wood carvers and do not use these tools for wood carving. Wood carving tools are not made like this, nor look like this at all.

                        Just like a woodturner often do not use woodcraft tool, nor wood carving tools, but woodturners tool. Not only that using an Exacto Knife blade is dangerous when using it on a wood carving, they break and can cause injury.

                        Pretty clear to me that you do not know the difference between a woodcarver and a wood craftsman who makes furniture and such. The difference in tool usage is major different.

                        We are wood carvers and you ARE on the wrong forum with your advertisement. PS no advertisements are allowed on this forum anyway.

                          All hat and no cattle and aren't known for being big talkers. But when they do ... It's better to keep your mouth shut and look stupid than open it and prove it. . Dis brother is in the wrong place....we ain't got any cows. Better stop drinking that moonshine when going into the wrong forum with his advertisements....

                            Oh Di, you must have missed the chip carved keepsake box. It was a prime example of speeded up video to get thru the tedious details.

                              Your right I missed it, ...after looking at a mass of wood craftsmen tools and machines I gave up on the video...so I will give the guy one brownie point. And your right the video really displays a false display of how real chip carving is. I did chip carving a few times and did not like it one bit...it is all about the correct angle of the tool, complete one stroke usage of the tool to depth, plus sure that it will take tons of time to master, Chip carving takes the skill of the person and not about the tool at all.

                              The advertisement wants a person to believe it is all about the tools, which agreed with the fact when making furniture those machines major cut downtime. But the wood craftsmen that I know are all about mastering the craft and not about the machines.

                              To the beginners out there, you must learn the skills and that takes patience and time. One good knife and few good woodcarving tools will get you started in learning. Stick with the recommended tools from old-timers on here. Will save you from buying new tools that are impossible to keep sharp because of shape or bad metal.
