Buels Gore Wood Carving

Recommended Posts



I carve human figures from black cherry or sugar maple trees from the woods in a small slice of mountain near Appalachian Gap, Vermont, US. Wandering around the forest, I look for burls that show a notable resemblance to human forms. Hardwood burls put up a bit more resistance than softer trees, but I like the rich tone that shows at the end, with all the color variation that occurs in contorted parts of trees. I am hoping to find other wood carvers on this site.
