Hello Christina

 

I'm glad you found us and cared to join us. I reckon the wood whittling clan here will be pleased to have you on board, we've had a surge of metal worshippers of late :blink:

 

Please feel at home, jump right in and I'm sure the rest of the gang will make you feel that you belong here.

 

very warmest regards, Ford :huh:

Hi there and thank you for the welcome.

 

I do carve a larger scale than the jewelry and small sculptures I have seen wonderful examples of on this site, and some of my carvings that are not pictured well on my web page are of "tokens" carved with a blessing or theme involved. They are meant to be worn hanging off of clothing or gifted to another for luck and often include a message in the symbolism.

 

I use pheil swiss made mallet tools for my carvings and occassionally a knife or two. Basswood or white pine are the easiest woods for me to acquire and use. I'm hoping to get a small chainsaw soon for carving, but that is another story.

 

I do small details on larger carvings too, and don't know if they are considered appropriate to show on this board. I'll learn more about the norm here before I get carried away.

 

I am in North Georgia, near Amicalola Falls State Park in the mountains. It is a beautiful part of the country with national forrest borders less than 2 miles away that stretch for days.

Aloha Christina,

 

Welcome aboard. :D Your work seems influenced by your surroundings.I noticed that you use Pfeil tools, as do I and others here (Ko Baas). Have you checked out their palm sets? A little pricey unless you pick up the sets, but as you know, the steel is excellent. Great for detail work.
