    replied to favorite kitchen tool
    Bought an Instant Pot cooker last year...it's our new favorite 'tool'. Pretty neat when you can cook a roast, potatoes and carrots in just over an hour!

  • I bought this Plano tackle box for all of my carving tools. If I don't want to take this on vacation, for example, I use a smaller bag I got at Cabela's and take less tools. Got this one below at Cabela's for $50.00...they matched a price from Sportsman's Warehouse. I really like mine.

    Scott Hagerty is in our carving club but has not been carving for a couple of years. He is an excellent carver, and if you would like, I can get his contact information if you want it! Just send me a PM and I can get it for you.

    Chuck...it sure does! I found out building the RC planes that a little goes a long way. Don't use too much CA when you put the damp pieces together and you should be fine!...

    replied to CA Glue
    Merle gives great advice...I keep a bottle of CA Gel glue in my carving box for repairs along with a piece of paper clip bent straight to keep the glue flowing if the tip gets plugged.

    Before I got started carving, I was into RC airplanes. I used Titebond for my builds, but one of the older...

    replied to Pattern For little People
    Jack Price' book was the first one I bought when I wanted to get into caricature carving. For the money, it is simply the BEST you can get to start carving something that looks like a person. His face tutorial is really simple, and the good thing is that his pattern can be re-sized to carve larger...

    replied to Stop Cuts
    I just finished teaching a class with a beginner, and our project was Bob K's Simple Santa. My student was having the exact same problem, until I told him to LIGHTLY incise the line so it is straight, and then put increasingly more pressure on the tip as he went along to get to the depth he wanted....

    replied to Fishing lure search
    Didn't we used to have a member, AlArchie, that used to carve lures? Not sure if you could do a search since it was awhile back before the website was hacked.
