The National Woodcarving School.

Thanks to Alin Dobra, he suggested this to one of our members,

So I thought it would be Appropriate to post it in a forum,

so more members can get to appreciate it.

It has a lot of free tutorials, & patterns, that would be very helpful to anyone interested in carving.

Thanks, Dick….I guess. Something else I want to do. Now if only I can find a way to put more hours into a day! This looks like a great site.

Thanks Dick.
I have been looking at the carvings being posted here and realized that I have been missing a great deal by not being familiar with this technique. I have favorited this as well. Now like Charlie, all I need is more time and, I am sure, more tools. With these it is possible that even being as “artistically challenged” as I am, I could possibly produce some passable carvings.

thanks for the post.

Thanks Dick for making this a forum topic. I essentially learned how to carve following the tutorials on this website. One of these days I’ll start following the intermediate and advanced tutorials to get better.

I thought this would be good as a forum topic, Alin.

Thanks for sharing this. Even though I’ve carved for quite a few years,

I’m always open to learning more.

I’ve always said that whenever I start a new carving, it’s like learning all over again.

Thanks Dick and Alin. I just got a set of carving knives a few weeks ago. I haven’t had them out yet. Maybe this will get me off the bubble.

Thanks Dick——whiling away the hours while not feeling well has been tough because I’ve not been able to work on my shop much. I had completely forgotten about carving. I broke out the knives this weekend and have managed a few small whitiling exercises and large pile of chips on the living room floor. At least made be feel better working with some type of wood and something sharp to cut with!
