North America Woodworking Clubs Directory

09-22-2016 05:56 PM by thegringoww | 1 comment »

Hello again, For the past several months I have been working on this project of compiling all the woodworking, woodturning, woodcarving, and scrollsaw clubs located in North America. Compiling this list took me a lot of personal time, and my hope is that it will benefit all of my fellow woodworkers. I believe this list is the most comprehensive list on the internet to date. I would like to extend an invitation to anyone that would like to be added to this list to contact me. I have ...

A Woodcarvers Dream Museum - Sanyi, Taiwan #2

03-07-2016 06:06 AM by thegringoww | 0 comments »

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...

A Woodcarvers Dream Museum - Sanyi, Taiwan #1

03-04-2016 02:01 PM by thegringoww | 4 comments »

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 ...

Woodworking Museum: Yerevan, Armenia For some people who read this crazy blog of mine you have probably noticed from my previous post that I travel a bit. So, when my wife told me there was a woodcarving museum in Yerevan, Armenia when we were in Kazbegi, Georgia, I was like WHAT? Are you pulling my chain? Because my wife does this sometimes just to mess with my head, but this time she was not kidding me. So, when we got to Yerevan, Armenia a week later, I had to locate this museum ...

HandWorks Event 2015 #3: Mary May and one sweet carving mallet!

05-21-2015 01:32 AM by CharlieK | 4 comments »

Mary May is a fantastic woodcarver. I met her very briefly at the Handworks event last week. A friend of hers makes these brass mallets to her specifications. They have just the right heft and they look beautiful! Of all the really cool tools at Handworks, this is the one thing that I just had to have. It is the most comfortable mallet I have ever seen and I am really glad that I got one The ends on each of these mallets had hand carved embellishments and each of them was a di...

04-03-2015 03:45 PM by stefang | 24 comments »

My purpose for this blog is to encourage anyone who has thought about taking up woodcarving to give it a try. I outline below my beginnings and progress so far. I am a complete novice, so I can’t teach you how to carve, but I have some ideas how you might learn. I have posted a couple of projects here on other carving work here on LJ, but the photos below show what I have been up to lately. If you like using hand planes, spokeshaves and knives you might want to consider woodcarving. It ...

History #1: History of Woodcarving

10-22-2014 06:39 PM by VobliX | 2 comments »

Woodcarving has been around just about as long as man has been upon this earth. Due to wood being a material that will not withstand the test of time, woodcarvings must be protected and taken care of if they are to endure. Unlike stone carvings or sculptures that might be buried for thousands of years, due to wars and conquests or for whatever the reason and survive, imagine what would happen to a woodcarving or woodsculpture under those conditions. Between the elements and the insects, in a ...
