  • How about more articles on sculptural carving?

    'Lo y'all
    I don't really do 'whittling' type projects; I lean more twords the sculptural side of things (like Jeff Phares or Wyland's stuff). Could you get some more articles that'll help us out with the details on how to do those things?

    Thanks

    Thank you for the suggestion. We keep a running list of all article suggestions, and this will now be added to it. When we choose articles for each issue, we review the list to see what our readers are looking for. This helps us make sure our magazine gives our readers exactly what they are asking for.

      Rather than an article on the subject it would be better if you got a book or took a class. Sculpting is quite an art in itself. Taking an art class in sculpting at a university or college would greatly benefit your cause. Jeff does some seminars and you could learn a lot from him during one of those. As far as learning from a book it is more difficult if you have not ever done it before.

        Please include patterns in the article! Good patterns and photos if possible.

            Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

            Wood supply

            We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

            What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
