Hello Everyone From Southern CA

I was searching the other night and found several forums about wood carving. I have started working with this medium as I have been making and shooting muzzle loading rifles for some years now and I have seen on some very old original ones some very beautiful carved stocks. Most are on walnut followed closely by striped maple. I recently bought a high speed air carver (400k RPM) and have started learning how to use it on some of my scrap pieces of walnut. I also have read about 15 books so far on all types of carving and this seems a very interesting hobby. Many years ago I used to work with a duck carver named Del Herbert of San Diego and he did really beautiful ducks so possibly one day........?

Thanks, John

Hello John and welcome!  What you do sounds very unique!  Can't wait to see some of your works.  Lots of great people here and loads of information from past posts.  I have not been here very long but it's been a real treat to look back at all of the information gathered here over the years!

Kind regards,

Heidi
