I've been hacking at wood for some 25 years. I originally started repairing antiques when my wife and I first married....we couldn't afford new furniture and broken antiques or stuff that needed re-finishing were right in our price range! I have some larger tools crammed in a small shop and built a few small pieces at one time, including a carousel style rocking horse for my daughter. I gradually spent less time in the shop as we raised our daughter and work and other things intefered. But I became interested in wood carving about 2 years ago and have cleaned up and refurbished all my tools. I like carving and smaller projects because they use less wood and I can complete them quicker...keeps me from getting too discouraged. I hope I can contribute something of value to this forum, but I'll probably lurk for a while..

Here is the process I used to attach the carved turkey foot to a bark-on shaft. I am not sure what type of wood the shaft is, but I selected it for the interesting bark it has. I have used this type before and the bark stays attached and has inter...
Really in high gear this time of year! I’ve sold quite a bit of my holiday carvings in the past week, but still working away. Here is a new Santa I hope to finish this weekend, especially since the weather is bad. He’ll be holding ...
