Marty;
You did a great job on our first plate; your expertice, your videos were just outstanding! I would like to see more patterns, and more videos on differen’t shapes of plates, maybe for the next class perhaps. Everyone that partisipated in this class I’m sure would like to do some more. Maybe we should take a vote on some more ideas from members? It seems that after learning the techniques on pattern transfer, all the right ways to do the cuts, most of us are now more familiar with the overal procedure from the pattern to the finishing. That’s my take!

Thanks for all the time you spent on this; it sure is appreciated by me!

Marty,
Thanks much for the great class. I’m still in the finishing touches of carving the border. Then off to cleaning off all the pattern transfer lines I didn’t carve off and finally the finishing. When done I will post picture here. Hopefully in the not too distant future. Your teaching here is much appreciated.

I just finished my first plate. Although I had problems with a “rock hard” plate, it did make it to the finishing table! I had a few chip-outs due to the dry wood, but the finishing process went really well. I think Marty’s instruction and finishing process is great. I used a cherry gel stain for the cuts. I sure hope he starts another class now with a differen’t shape plate and pattern. Thanks for looking!

Way to go, Rich! Good choice to sub-divide the large center chips seeing as you were carving a hard piece of basswood. Super!!

Marty;
Let me add some more ideas for upcoming classes. What I would like to see is how to lay out and draw different patterns right on the plates, the old fashioned way! I realize that this is a bit much to ask for, but it would really help us out here. If we could learn to do differen’t patterns for various shaped plates, from the middle to the outside rim, as we all see in chip carving books, per say. They show the finished carving, but how did they draw it!? There are nice ones in the pattern vault, but how do we get them from the vault (PDF file) to the working plate. Some patterns we could mix and match for differen’t applications, themes, etc. This would take some advanced computer skills and programs for sure. I would like to learn everything there is to know.

Thanks;
Rich

To those of you that are looking for additional classes become a premium member on his website and you will get what you asked for and MUCH more. I highly recommend it. Also Marty does have classes at his shop in Garden City, MN. I took one of those and we drew most of our designs. I realize that it is too far for many of you. Check it out. I love getting a new video and pattern every month.

Have your say...
