    Ron, I have a piece of madrone waiting for me to carve. I am told it is a very hard wood but beautiful finished. Am waiting anxiously for someone who has carved it to tell us about it.

        If you are carving a harder wood with tools sharpened for soft woods like basswood you will find that they lose their edge very quickly. Keep the strop very close and don't be surpised if you need to re-hone your knife or tools when you get done.

          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?
