After a number of years in classic woodworking as a hobby, I'm now retired and find woodcarving fits my lifestyle. Being fairly new to carving, I carve small stuff, love spoons, small animals, and small relief carvings. I started making a few I'm slowly learning how to carve wizards using carving books and youtube tutorials. I'd appreciate any advice form you experienced carvers, and am open to adding carving buddies. If anyone wants to communicate with me, I thank you. I'm married, with grown children and have a 3 year old golden retriever. On a clear day, I can see Mt. Rainier. On a winter day, I can see my mailbox. LOL

Thanks! It’s amazing how many uses a person can come up with for deer antler, isn’t it. I never would have thought of using it to burnish…that’s really cool!

Try it – If you carve softer wood like I do, deer horn will knock down those obstinate hairs always trying to pop up by forcing them back into the wood. It will also put a sheen on the wood.
