  • 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.

    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.

          Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
          Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

          I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

          I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

          The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

          Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower:

          Here is the pattern on Ricks' site: http://www....
