  • cypress knees

    The Capn has a question for those of you who have carved cypress knees in the past. How much do you carve on these? Do you use them as a roughout and carve something to the general shape or do you do minimal carving on them, such as putting a santa face on and paint the rest?

    Enquiring minds want to know!

    Hi,
    I enjoy carving in woodspirit. Check out Harold Enlow's Driftwood carving book, great faces. I leave some bark on and spray with a satin varnish. A carving buddy loves to draw knife off the bark and goes from there, they look great too.

      Hi-
      I try and let the piece of wood dictate what I carve. Ilike santa's or spirits, but have done eagles heads or fish depending on what I see in the wood. My goal is to let the carving emerge from the wood and not look like I carved what I wanted.
      Hope this helps-
