I don't know if I'll ever truly feel like I can call myself a "woodworker".

I feel differently about Southern Pine than I once felt. Now I have love for it.

I use hand tools only now.

My father died when I was 12.

I am sometimes commissioned to build things with wood, but usually not things that I care about.

I am a minimalist.

I have always loved the presence of wood, and I don't know why.

I work as a professional musician in the Southeast region of the US.

I live in the forest. For now, that is, until commercialization finally infects this area too.

I run marathons.

I have 9 keyboards and 2 pianos.

I Went to Northwest Florida State for design, and music.

I am obsessive. And -- I've finally learned to embrace it.

Bill Evans is my hero.

Coffee is the nectar of the Gods.

I think wood really is an extension of the earth's goodness.

How's that for gettin' deep?

Sorry Sean… I may not be the best source for wood carving info. All my small carvings to date have been done with a MORA brand carving knife (made here in Sweden but available also in many places in the States) except for my very few pieces decades ago which I did with a Dremel set and many bits. The MORA carving knife I use looks like this carving knife

Later this summer I will begin on some larger sculptures with a chainsaw, chisels, rasps and ‘the’ knife. I don’t know about gouges so much as I’ve never used them. May purchase a couple just to see how they work for wood removal. I’m pretty much self taught on the wood carving stuff though I do have many years of sculptural experience and a couple of degrees in Sculpture as well… metal and glass.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

I have enjoyed “thumbing through” your projects. You have a simplistic design style that i really find appealing. It seems you create in a very relaxed state of mind. Thank you for sharing.

Have your say...
