I posted some things on Craigslist and was looking around when I found an interesting add offering woodcarving supplies. there was 2 boxes of books and 4 boxes of cut outs, or rough outs as some call them. I got in touch with the guy and found out he was putting them on for a friend who was now too old to carve. A deal was struck and I picked them up yesterday after an exhausting day driving around Atlanta. For those that don’t know rough outs here is a catalog. I have over 50 of the larger ones and lots of smaller.
Then the books, this is what I was after most. Carving Santas, Carving small characters, Hillbilly Carving, wheew, 100’s of books hard and soft cover. Then personal references in folders. This is just what I needed to fine tune my skills. Doug

My goodness me Doug, That seems a huge score you’ve made there…good luck with the time & patience.
I may have to put in an order for you to do some practice and then ship the finished goods down-under??
I like the “roughout” website…
Cheers, Peter
