    Here he is painted up ( I will still add a finish coat of Tried and True ). Honestly I couldn't see any difference between basswood or poplar when it came to the painting part of this project. All in all , I couldn't see much difference between the two woods, except as Scotia Carver pointed out, the...

    Actually the poplar wasn't bad at all. It was a bit harder than the basswood that I have been presently using, but I didn't have any trouble carving it. I did have to turn my burner up by one setting to do the highlighting ,... I usually have it set on 6, but had to turn it up to 7 to get the same results....

    Team effort...

    Just thought I'd pass this along for the neck of it.... Recently Scotia Carver asked me if I had ever carved poplar and I hadn't so he offered to send me some that he had on hand. Now SC lives in the northern part of the Province and I live in the southern part about 200 miles apart. Fortunately he...

  • Difficult situation you find yourself in Joe. It's obvious that your friend wanted you to have this and he is making sure that his wish is carried out while he is still in control. Maybe you should carve one of the pieces of bark into something that signifies your past friendship/business dealings and...

  • I'm going to make a guess here, but I believe that knife was made by Tom Ellis from Spokane Washington. The initial would fit and I know that he has made knives in the past ( I'm the proud owner of 2 or 3 of his knives)
    you can contact him here on the forum as he is on here every day.

    Another version.....

    First Bob K. had an article published in WCI showing the steps to carving a fisherman, so I had to try that. Then Steve Reede comes along and changes it up a bit to become a Santa,... so I had to try that as well. Now here's my version of that pattern representing a hippy from the 60's.... .

    replied to What is this?
    Not really sure, but it may be basswood. I have seen similar looking grain in some that I buy from my supplier up here. What I have experienced is that it is harder than "good" basswood (Heiniki's basswood), but wasn't impossible to carve.....just more difficult = less fun to carve.

    Even though you are taking advice from others, I can see your distinct style developing with each carving. Maybe add a few small wrinkles to the pant cuffs, to give the impression that they are gathered up over his shoes...

    replied to Claude's Reindeer Pattern
    No, each reindeer is one piece....... they are carved from 2 different patterns,... one pattern has the deer looking straight ahead, the other pattern the deer has his head turned.
    if you try it be extremely careful while carving the horns ( lots of grain direction changes) make sure your knives...

    Claude's Reindeer Pattern

    A couple of days ago, Claude posted some pictures of a pair of reindeer that he recently carved. Like a lot of carvings posted by others this one really caught my eye, so I asked Claude if he would mind sharing his pattern. So here is my attempt at carving the reindeer. These are 6" tall and 1"...
