I’ve had some long-term projects that have been sitting on a shelf for a long time and I decided to get them down and try and complete them.The reason I’ve put off completing these projects is they have lots of carving on them and having used a power carver on them, ( by my estimation they turned out pretty well given I’ve only had one other small carving project before.Getting back to my point ,even though I thought the carving I had done turned out very well,they still require a lot of sanding (hours and hours worth),this made me think that perhaps if the carving I had been done with carving chisels instead of a power carver they would have been much closer to a finished product.I started thinking back and I remembered Charles Neil had visited a carver on his online class (mastering woodworking class) who’s name is Mary May who also has an online class that teaches wood carving and offered a number of the classes for free,so I found her website online and have watched a number of her video classes.
I’m so very impressed by her talent and great ability to teach so clearly many techniques and processes involved with high-quality carving. I wanted to share this great resource and talent with you so if you have an interest in carving you too could enjoy Her great teaching and expert videos also. Enjoy!
