I downloaded this eBook about 10 months ago after asking how these flowers were made, I had imagined that wood chips from previous carvings projects were collected and glued together. I was soon directed to
www.TheCarversCorner.com and for a well spend $5.00 I downloaded the ebook straight to my computer.

After reading the easy to follow instructions, I went out and collected some suckers from a Poplar tree which were easy to whittle while reasonably green. I didn’t have any carving knives but found that the Stanley
Knife with a new sharp blade cut well.

After peeling of the bark, it was a matter of cutting the petals, which after several attempts started to look like flowers, I let them dry in the sun and being a lazy individual I spray painted mine different pastel colours.
Colouring the flowers are covered in this book.

Once I had enough flowers cut and painted it was a matter of how to display them. Pictures 2 and 3 above are two of my early creations, both have been sold and since then I have turned vases for the flowers, made wall plagues and used them on boxes. This ebook has paid for itself many times over.

Recommend this book to anyone into wood working whether carving or turning. If you are like me you will get bored doing the same thing over and over, I take a break, whittle a few flowers, let them dry and store away until I have a project for them. I have created something, feel fresh and back to the lathe or whatever.

More information on the EBook can be seen on www.TheCarversCorner.com.

Jerry, Flowers are like live flowers and petals can be knocked off but with the wooden flowers a bit of superglue and it is back on. I have other styles in my projects.
