  • V Tools

    Chris Pye has posted a new e-book at his site about V tools. Everything you ever wanted to know about this great tool. Check it out at
    You can download it for free. I do very few carvings that I don't use at least one V tool.

    Re: V Tools

    I downloaded the book and it told me everything that was wrong about my tools and when I got to the chapter on how to fix it, I was instructed to purchase a key that would allow me access to the last chapter. Chris Pye is a great guy and an outstanding woodcarver, but this tactic was kinda cheap.

      I agree Capt. This was like watching a two part movie. I had no indication it was a pay for view event either. Sorry about the tip...wasn't a good one I guess.

        in Chris's defense: if you had clicked on the 'full details' button on the download site it tells you that it is just a portion of the book so you can evaluate it's relavance before purchase. Perhaps it's these rose colored glasses I look through but I really don't think he was trying to be tricky or deceitful but rather helpful and honest. Yes I am a Chris Pye fan no I have not met him nor do I have any affiliation with him.

          Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
          And on each cloud touching the body ?

          I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

          Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

          What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

          Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

          I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
