  1. Finally a finished wooden doll for my daughter. Have a nice evening everyone. ☺️
  2. Thank you very nicely😊
  3. Thak you 😊 I made this two-hour project after playing with the children Ludo? I wasn't able to roll a six. But I still didn't win with this dice. Everyone can find the deeper meaning for themselves.πŸ˜‰
  4. Nice elegant design with an idea .... I like it. Have a nice evening everyone
  5. There are winners and there are losers .... πŸ˜‰ (pear wood)
  6. My partner and I used to make hair clips. I carved a wooden base and she painted it by hand. The mechanism was then fastened with screws.
  7. Hi Francis, thank you for the kind response. It's definitely not a secret :-). Hair clip is carved from linden. This wood is soft, so this solution is as simple as possible. I just drilled two small holes at a 45-degree angle with a drill and stretched the rubber band.

    My faithful dog, the standard schnauzer Marie waits under the table while I work. πŸ˜‰
  9. Very nice, looks like carved in stone 😊
  10. Hair clip for my daughter in first grade elementary school.
  11. Hello Ed congratulations on your recovery from illness πŸ˜‰
  12. I'm afraid I'll let you down. The theater was not performed last year due to the Covid epidemic. I made this puppet to learn the mechanics of moving a creature with multiple limbs. The model for the puppet was Czech professional rock climber Adam Ondra https://adamondra.com/. He climbs the walls like a spider :-) have a nice day everyone Pavel
  13. The original goal of the course is to play a puppet show for children in the old barn on hay at the end of the course. Every year a new fairy tale is invented, the roles are divided and everyone carves out their character, paints and ties their puppet, learns their role, and plays their part in the fairy tale. Of course, during the course, the construction of puppets, puppet theater, etc. is discussed. Pavel
  14. Dear Janel, thank you for the nice review. I was on this course for the first time 20 years ago, but I'm not an instructor. The instructor is a carver and actor of professional puppet theater. For me, this course is now the only opportunity to spend 8 days of uninterrupted work a year. Invent, carve and complete an entire project at once. Pavel
  15. Greetings to all. Every year, a course in the production of a classic puppet is held in a small village in an disused primary school. This is a puppet that I made here last year. Nice weekend πŸ˜‰
  16. 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
  17. 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.

  18. Hi, my great-grandfather carved in the early 20th century. When I was 30 I tried it too ... . Pavel πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ™‚ 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 KrΓ‘lovΓ© (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.
