Carving 187, Begining Carving

I am also taking the begining carving class a Palomar College. This short video shows the begining of carving our final project for the first semester. It is a Newport Shell Modified. It does not have as many rays as the traditional Newport Shell and has some other small improvements so we can learn other carving techniques.

Cool. I have dreamed of taking classes like this for many years. I was fortunate to study with a Dutch carver for several years in Holland, but all he taught was chip carving. Although I am proficient with that, the real stuff like this is where my heart is. Just before I returned to the US, I found a German craftsman that was doing some really nice work in a village about 90 miles away, but by that time, I was too close to returning to work out any sort of deal. I feel very fortunate that I was able to live and study in the Netherlands for 4 years while stationed there in the military.
