    Re: TOOTHPICK CARVINGS!!!!

    I tried to get into your site twice, JD - both times it wouldn't respond. I'm really interested in seeing what a 'toothpick' carving is!! And MORE interested in how you've done a website about it without pictures!

        I also ran the search and got to see a few of the photos of carved toothpicks. They are definitly a challenge to do, but done they are! Very inventive material.

                  I would suggest for such small items that you might be better off if you can find a friend with a good 35mm camera with a macro lens, a tripod, and a cable release. The film can be developed and put on a disk so you can upload the pics to your computer and site. I am thinking about dusting off my Minolta and using it for pics since I took Christmas pics with both it and the digital and the pictures on disk from the 35mm are far superior.

                          You folks are too easily impressed. :

                          I can carve a toothpick chain out of a 1in x 1in x 3 ft long piece of basswood. Then take a picture and superimpose a penny next to it. (could work) :-/

                          I do have a friend who carved several toothpics and matchsticks into chains. He sharpened dental instruments into chisels and had more patience than I have.

                          I did try to make pliers from wood kitchen matches once, without success, but I used up a whole box of matches before I gave up.

                              JD,
                              I don't know if this will work for you but you might want to try and scan your toothpick carvings on a flatbed scanner.

                              I would love to see them. Let us know when you get pictures.

                                Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                                Was it a good idea.....?...

                                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
