New to carving

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone my names Brendan, I'm from New Zealand but now live in Sardinia, Italy.

I just started carving about 3 weeks ago. I have started in juniper wood mainly cause it's readily avaliable and durable.

Here's a few pieces that are near finished.

Hey Sandy, Cheers for the Welcome.

A Kiwi yes but in Sardinia, hard to find pounamu here,

and as I've just moved here aswell as just started carving haven't quite

got my tongue round the language to go down and hit the local butcher up for bone off-cuts.

So for now use what I find naturally.

Hey Janel, Thanks for the welcome to this forum.

I cut the slices with a basic hand saw and use a rasp, carpenters chisel, craftknife and sandpaper,

pretty limited I know.

Have just the other day bought a Dremel drill but don't have many bits so yet to use it really.

Brendan
