In the streets around the museum there are stores selling wood sculptures in various costs and sizes. In the picture below starting left to right: a typical store, a piece of wood, a wall hanging wood sculpture, two wood sculptures and last is the stores owners. Can you guess which one was the most expensive piece? If you guessed any other thing than the “piece of wood” then you were wrong. That is right, the piece of wood is the most expensive one apparently in all of Taiw...
When I first starting thinking about writing this article, I came up with several ideas. At first, I wanted to give the article a sense of mystic and intrigue, but lets face it I am not Herman Melville, and why would I want to be? Then, I tried writing it like an information piece, but in the end it sounds like a term paper. I was just about to give up, when I decided to revert back to myself and just write it without thinking about too much. This post is about a wood sculpture museum ...
Behind the scenes of my shop and YouTube channel #4: David Marks, Michael Cooper, Peter Brown, Ray Mowder, & Zac Higgins!!!
This is really turning out to be the trip of a lifetime! I interviewed Zac Higgins in Carson City and Ray Mowder in Sacramento. Both of them are great guys and I had a lot of fun meeting with them! Then I drove further into northern California and interviewed the great sculptor Michael Cooper! It so happens that David Marks lives just a few miles from Michael and I got to spent an entire day with him! Then, the icing on the cake was that Peter Brown also lives in the area and I g...
This is my first art piece. It is a hand forged rose and broken heart tied back together. They are mounted into a mahogany base and has an oil finish. Please view the video, subscribe to my Youtube channel, and share it. Thank you all! ””Mended Heart video
This posting was made by Fine Woodworking and it is quite remarkable. This “box of money” is carved from one piece of wood and hand painted! Check it out! “It’s tough to make real money from your work, but I found a guy who is dong the next best thing. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen the step-by-step photos myself.His name is Randall Rosenthal, and he lives in East Hampton, NY. Everything he does is carved from a single block of wood, an...
Well I finally have made a little progress on this carving. There turned out to be allot of filling major cracks. So I actually had to block off the bottom of the stump and fill allot of tightbond glue. I finally got the stump to quit internal splits. I check the progress of wood expansion by using filler on the last 1/8” of split. I let it sit for a week or two and if the filler doesn’t show signs of expansion I know it has sealed inside. I don’t like to give up on a projec...
This carving started out as the young giant from Michelangelo’s work. so I draw what I think as a shape. I start in with heavy chisels and start removing wood while watching for grain formations. On the third day I realized a woman under a waterfall and that the hands I had carved not even a contortionist couldn’t put their hands in the position I had placed mine. So I cut them off and thanks to Terri she said to just place them under her hair on her head whew!!! I was f...

Wood and I….Sculpture ….while walking down the isles of life’s design,i was roiled enough to loose my way on a walk-about,the forest and trees no-longer fed this hunger within,and for days becoming years my dreams died as inaesthetic…. ….that was in-deed the hole i dug until i had no-strength dig deeper,what came next was confronting my dragon and refusing his lies any-more,so i went back to the woods fearing to hope and believe what i might find,what i found was that ...
