Since retiring almost two years ago and beginning my particpation with LumberJocks, I have been exposed to so many different aspects of woodworking. I’ve been fortunate to be able to attend a number of local seminars (at Lee Valley) and try these different woodworking types first hand.
My next chair will include a significant figurative carving so I am still working at building up my confidence with carving. Recently I attended a second caricature carving seminar. The focus of the senminar is to understand how to set up the structure of a human face and by the end of the day you walk away with one completed face and another roughed-out to complete as homework. It was a fun day and a great opportunity to learn more about carving from a very skilled instructor. Now on to carving that chair!
The carving is done on a quartered piece of basswwod and is about 12 inches tall.
