    Luther

    Well, Luther stayed up a little late helping the wife color Easter Eggs on Saturday evening, and was taking a few nips in between his duties...well, he woke up a little late on Easter morning and instead of donning his Bunny Suit, he quickly put on his Santa garb! None the less, his grandkids enjoyed...

    Love that!! Great humor! The one 'lady' fish looks like my 5th grade teacher from 1971!

  • Paul's website at Deepwoods Ventures is www.deepwoodsventures.com. He hand forges his knives, and makes his knives to order. He is makes hook knives for bowl and spoon carving, and is also making a Sloyd style knife as well. Most of the OOC Tool knives and Helvie knives can be bought at any good carving...

  • I am the poster child for buying knives that were cheap, only to find out the old saying, 'Buy once, cry once', is really true. Here is the best advice I can give you that I wish someone would have given me 22 years ago when I started.

    Mike Shipley makes excellent tools at OCC Tools, and...

    replied to How do you sign your work??
    I am like Bob...he only has 2 more letters in his name than I do, and that is if I use my first name as Tim instead of Timothy!

    I sign with a woodburning pen. I use my 'sign' of a silhouette of mountains...really just a W with 2 'legs' on either side...kind of looks like a funky spider....

    started a topic 'Bobby' Bear

    'Bobby' Bear

    I named this little fella after one of my favorite country singers of the 60's and 70's...at any rate, it has been a long winter here in Central Kansas, and Bobby just woke up from his Winter's nap! Since it would not be good to have a 'Bare Bear' running around, he put on his best pair of overalls...

    Rod,
    I got my Dockyard tools pretty well early on into my carving 'career'. Most all of my little Jack Price guys have had the Dockyard U-gouge eye socket and a painted eye. After I took a Mike Shipley class and learned how he did eyes, (Dockyard eye socket and a carved half moon), I changed to...

    replied to Wood burning
    I only burn when I know the paint color will match my burned 'seam'...either charcoal, dark brown or black. I don't burn an area that I will paint with lighter colors. I have not had an issue with paint bleeding since I started using an acrylic medium to thin my paints rather than using water. I find...

    Rod...On my Jack Price characters, I use a small Dockyard gouge for the eye socket, and then paint the socket with white, and then a Black or Chocolate Bar pupil, and then a white reflection dot. The little guy is 2" tall, and I didn't do an iris. On my larger carvings, will do an iris, like the...

  • Don't have a good picture, however, I just purchased the Bishop Ocular Tool, made by Mike Shipley at OCC Tools. It is a 7/16" X 64 Soft V tool. Used to make the eye socket in caricatures, and for relieving wood next to the nose.
