    Veterans day a different thought

    I have not discussed on here of the things I do on the outside. I major volunteer to help the poorest of poor. You can find me carry camo buckets filled with food into the rainforest at times with special crutches on my arms for these people, pick them up and drive them across town for a good part...

    It is raining hard, but the wood studio is dry, due the massive cleaning of drainage areas and making a few new ones last flooding early this year. Inside the house it is like camping out in a massive rain storm...the humidity must be in the middle 90 percent. I do have two areas inside the house...

    replied to What is this?
    Looks like the maple sitting in my shop and it is hard and solid. Great for small pieces that will not break. Although I am no expert in what kind of wood is it.....

    replied to Cheating or Common Practice
    There are tons of opinions of what is cheating in woodcarving ....but the bottom line in art is to use any method you need to get the results you want. No need to ask for political debate which can turn ugly at any point. There is always someone who will not like what you are doing, ..... I find...

    replied to what size / type of wood to use.
    Jeff Phares carves American Indians and cowboy bust...almost of his work is 8inch by 8 inches approximately 14 to 16 inches long. I agree that this is a great size to carve with. As you do not want something to small. He also carves half relief ....4 inches thick 8inch long and 14 to 16 inches long....

  • One great thing about this forum we all have different ways of doing things. Brian can tell you what shape and angle his tools are and what is the best. Me I just shape the darn things by sight and could not tell you what shape or angle they are. Same with measurement of water in a log....I have...

  • Wet vs dry wood carving. Hardwoods and the exotics are often carved wet, then dried to finish. Why because they are ten times easier to carve wet. Worst issue with carving wet is cracking. Me I carve it all.....wet and dry. It will also depend where you are living ....dry vs.....living in...

  • One thing about finishes....they all can produce different results. Some will keep the white color you want, others will change colors of the wood depending on what you want. Meaning a dark finish can be made by the kind of finish you use and same with a lighter finish. The wood will not often look...
