Hello all, I am a woodcarver, carving teacher and carving Tutorial Video producer. I am a transplanted Arkansan living in the Tennessee Valley of Alabama.

I mainly carve faces in Basswood, Cottonwood bark, Butternut and Driftwood.

 

I have lurked in this forum off and on for years and have finally come foward. I love the wonderful work I see here and the creativity on display.

 

I have a great intrest in doing Netsuke, bone carving, engraving, scrimshaw and other arts I have seen here and look foward to meeting and making friends here.

 

I am posting a couple of carvings I have finished latey.

Thanks for looking and letting me be a part of the talented community!

Gary, welcome to the forum. I really like the design in the first carvings above.

I only work in hard-stone and have a relentless fear of doing faces,

but those designs are something that I think I would like to try someday soon.

 

Thanks for the inspiration; Kurt

Hello Kurt, Thanks for the welcome and the comments. Faces are one of the hardest things to get right, and I have a long way to go myself. You ought to go and look at my YouTube channel, I have a bunch of tutorials there about how to do a face. I have a simple woodspirit, a Greenman, a Santa, and a eye tutorial, check them out, they might help you.

Thanks for the link, I'm sure I shall use them extensively very soon,

as I'm going to take on this challenge rather sooner than later.

 

Woodspirit, Greenman? Thats what you call them? We got the same names in German and Austria where those and similar immages are often used.

 

Thanks again, Kurt
