Hello

My name is Keith and have been carving wood and making jewlery for the last 3 years and have moved into

working antler and bone this past winter and just love working with this medium and exploring

my voice with it.

Hope to upgrade my tools and was looking at a turbo carver but read some bad reviews,so now I am

looking into a paragrave system .Any suggestions as to what a reliable?

Hi Keith,

 

Wood cross sections that contain the pith or central growing point tends to split when drying. I don't know the trick to keep it from splitting. Some of the boxwood that I have acquired over the years has some smaller diameters that did not split. Perhaps very slow drying with the ends sealed, over many years might be why..
