  • My 1st relief carving

    hello everyone! I wanted to get some feedback from the pros about my 1st relief carving which I have completed some time ago. I'm a brand new carver and I dont know anyone around in the field to give me feedback on what I have done! Thank you in advance! Claude. PS, I have posted it to the picturetrail website for all to see.
    Enjoy Yourself!!

      Wow, Claude, you did a great job on that sign!! Lettering is one of the most difficult things to get right, IMHO. Amazing first carving!!

        Claude,
        Welcome aboard nice to have another Canadian aboard. I cant believe that is your first carving my first didnt look anywhere as good as that. I see you are from London Ontario I was just down that way this week visiting a very good carving friend of mine Phil Orchard he teaches carving in London wondering if you knew him? Also Mary-Ann Jack Bleach is also an excellent carver from London another good friend of mine.

            very nice work claude. i especially like the wings on the gull.
            relief can sometimes be very difficult because of the small layers you have to create, but you have done a great job.

              Thanks for your wonderful comments. I really appreciate all the feedback I get. This relief carving was given to a very close friend of ours who still resides in Victoria. She wanted me to start making some for other military families but I told her that would take the fun out of it and she would have to settle on this one-of-a-kind carving. I'm quite a few years from retirement and I just want to carve for the fun of giving them away to family and friends. I wonder if anyone else feels thw same as I do but it just feels good for now. Which part of Canada are you from Colin? It's also nice to hear from fellow Canadians also Take care everyone! Claude.
              Enjoy Yourself!!

                  Wow Claude, that looks great. I can't believe that's your first relief carving. I love those carved signs and yours is really beautiful.

                  It looks like I'm right between you and Colin, I'm from Hamilton. Did either of you guys have anything in the Woodcarving Champoinships at the Hamilton Woodshow??

                    Chris,
                    I didnt enter the Hamilton show but I did enter the Kitchener Wood Show and placed 2nd. The same carving took first at the Brooklin show it was my large bark carving. There is a picture of it on Picturetrail in the woodspirit album

                      Yes, I saw that bark carving when you posted it. Wow, I really like that one and at 7 ft. tall, I don't think I would have missed that one if it was at any shows I've been to.

                      I've been itching to start a woodspirit. To make things worse, I was just given two pieces of walnut about 12' dia. and 3 ft. long on the weekend. They are sitting in my garage just staring at me.

                      Chris :P

                        Hello Chris! Nice to hear from you and Colin. As for your question, I dont know when I will have the nerve to enter any kind of woodcarving competition since it took me almost a year to get the nerve to post my releif picture on the Picturetrail website. I'm very fussy about my carvings and so far have given them away to close friends and family as gifts. Maybe in the fall I might get the time and courage to carve and enter one just for kicks. In the mean time, I will keep those gifts coming in. Take care! Claude.
                        Enjoy Yourself!!

                          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...

                          I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                          FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                          Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                          I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
