The fixture is made from some borg 3/4”by 24” by 24” plywood squares. I laminated two sheets together for the top to support...

The pencil point is set at the height of the contour and this is ma...

Mentoring the next generation

02-04-2012 06:51 PM by Eli Adamit | 4 comments »

(Photos are Included below) In a comment on my last project, I was asked by one of the members here in the Ljcks as follows: “I hope you are mentoring somebody from the next generation. What you have learned about “feeling the wood” shouldn’t be lost. So, actually I don’t have a training studio for training for the time being, may be in the future. On the other hand’ I already started to train my grandchild Asaf to carve. When he was 6.5 years old just before entering to the...

04-23-2012 02:17 PM by mpounders | 6 comments »

I’ve been replacing the roof on a shed and doing other carpentry work, so I haven’t carved much in a few weeks. But I spent the weekend attending a two day seminar by Roger Stegal, a member of the Central Arkansas carving club, who has won several awards in different Caricature Carvers of America competitions. I had a lot of fun, picked up s few tips, sharpened some tools for other members, and got to visit a bit. I liked a couple of his smaller carvings, a Santa and a mounta...
