Northumbrian Carver


Davy Tee

Recommended Posts

Hello all from beautiful Northumberland.

 

I am very new to carving having fell into it by accident. I have always loved anything to do with wood and trees and havnt worked with wood since leaving school some 27 years ago.

 

I am using just a carving knife at the moment working with Lime making wood spirits and the like and learning the techniques required to do basic carving.

 

i am hoping to move onto a power carver soon (Dremel sort of thing i was thinking).

 

So i look forward to contributing to the forum and learning from those that have much wisdom.

Welcome to The Carving Path, Davy.

 

The power tool is only part of the success of a carving. The hand tools really make a difference with details and completeness of the design of a piece. Learn what you can do with both kinds of tools. Reading the many years of posts about hand tools will be educational.

 

Again, Welcome!
