    Hi Nu Vicking, Welcome from another Canuck! I haven't carved any stone yet besides a little soapstone when I was younger but intend to try my hand at it when I have the time. I carve mostly wood now & have a good friend that carves wood & stone & he is to show me the ropes soon also. Thanks, Robbin My Webpage

    Sanding

    Hello, I have been reading on the topic of sanding & wanted to add to it also. My finishing techniques stem from experience in autobody refinishing & are a little different than I normally see with normal wood finishing techniques. I do both fine sculpture & chainsaw carving & with the fine sculpture the finish is "Glass Like". I normally fine sand down to a minimum of 220 Grit dry then I apply 2 - 3 coats of epoxy, wet sand down to 400 - 600 grit & then apply (spray) 2 - 3 coats of automotive polyurethane enamel for the gloss & UV protection if the piece is to be exposed to the elements. For examples of my work/finish please visit my website at http://www.robbinsamazingart.com Thanks & I love to share ideas & techniques! Always learning! Robbin I don't know if you know who this character is?

    Introduction

    Hi, My name is Robbin Wenzoski & I am relatively new to carving. I have always indulged in woodwork of one sort or another & have, sometimes intentionally or not, added a little artistry to my work & hobbies as well. Most of my carvings/sculptures may not fit in the "small scale" criteria of this forum, but I immensly enjoy being part of the communication that is present in carving forums. I was born & spent most of my life in Golden, British Columbia, Canada with the exception of 5 years spent in Malta, when I was young. I moved to SouthWestern, Ontario, Canada in 1987 & have been here since. My woodwork experience started in Golden, B.C. at a plywood manufacturing facility & later I worked building Cedar log homes & timber frames around the Golden & Lake Louise, Alberta area. Shortly after moving to Ontario I became interested in Cedar strip/epoxy canoe & kayak building & then moved into my first carving adventure about 3 years ago & have indulged in carving ever since. I became invlved with the internet at about the same time & started building my own free website 2 years ago. I am looking forward to meeting fellow carvers & sharing ideas & techniques as I have a great desire to learn! Please visit my site at www.geocities.com/aruba692003 & leave your comments, thoughts, opinions or whatever you want in my guestbook. It is appreciated & looking forward to meeting some fellow carvers here! Thanks, Robbin
