  1. Janel, in the photo is my great-grandfather at the beginning of the 20th century and in front are the heads of puppets, which he carved for the puppet theater. Pavel
  2. Hi Andrew, thank you for the comment. Carvers chop is very useful for me (at the link you can see how it is attached) I have my small workshop in the apartment and due to the noise I can't use a mallet or dremel, for example. That's why I have a heavy table on which I have a carves chop attached so that I can use my weight while standing while roughing. My desk is quite high, when I roughing I work standing up, I sit on a bar stool while finishing the carving. Something different suits everyone.

  3. Hi, my great-grandfather carved in the early 20th century. When I was 30 I tried it too ... . Pavel 🙂

    Hello Janel Thank you for a nice welcome. I chose a netsuke that I would like to make from boxwood (pict. 1). After a while it was obvious where, is the main difference. The hardness of the material determines the method of work. I work exclusively by hand. While making a small skull in a linden tree is a matter of a few hours (pict. 2), the rough processing of the boxwood (pict. 3) is much more physically demanding 🙂 But I expect that it will be much better to carve details. I will have to regrind my chisels or buy other tools for this material. Pavel

    Hello The Carving Path community!I come from Hradec Králové (Czech republic - Europe).Carving is my hobby. I work in a laboratory that investigates water quality in rivers.I have some experience with wood carving. So far I carved mostly from linden: puppets, heads ... I always liked to carve small objects - such as hair clips. I have now purchased Buxus from Turkey and would like to try small-scale work on this material. I hope that in this forum I find useful information for my further work.In the attached files are examples of some of my work.
