    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.

                  J.D.

                  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.

                                That is beautiful.

                                I am chaffing at the bit to get back to the scroll saw, Unfortunately the urban renewal project "Redoing the deck" has taken over all of my time.

                                Excellent contrast not only in wood choices (LOVE the bocote), but also 90 degree corners on the bocote and radius corners on the maple. Very nice!
