Mary May's on line wood carving lessons ***AND turning blanks for carving a Philly Highboy rosette #3: FOURTH ENTRY Celtic Knots and Tudor Rose

The Byzantine style of decoration dates from the early half of the sixth century to the conquest of the Eastern Roman Empire by the Crusaders, a.d. 1204.

FIRST ENTRY Have been selling these deck cooler cabinets pretty well this summer. My twist is to carve on the front of them. Team logos, peoples names, company logos… etc. But my carving skills were defined by he sharpness of the Knack knife I was using. Went to Woodcraft in Walpole MA and saw Andrew Teixeira do a carving exhibition a month or so ago. Got the bug, but the first class was not until November.
