Hello my fellow LJ’s….long time, no see! I haven’t been around on here for a while, and it seems some odd phenomena has been occurring while I was away from the site.

The 1st time it happened, I thought it was a typing mistake, the 2nd time…I wasn’t so sure. This time I KNOW it wasn’t by accident! That’s 3 guys in a row to comment on my profile that they like my “curving” or “curvings” instead of CARVING/S.

Could it REALLY be a simple slip of the keys, woodworkers who just can’t spell the simple word carvings (?), or is talking about our female figures the new way to address the females on LJ’s?

I’d like to think that I have enough projects posted on here to not be seen as fluff, and someone who really enjoys what I do, showing that I’ve developed some skill at it over the past 4 years. Either way…I say thank you….but my “curvings” aren’t on display for review, while my CARVINGS are! lol! Things that make you go hmmmm….. ;-)

Anyway, just my 2 cents for the moment….carry on LJ’s :-)

I don’t know about your “curvings” but I love you carving work. You know woodworkers don’t tend to get out of the shop very often…

Keep up the good work.

I am gonna say something here that may make me seem stupid! You know the old saying goes keep your mouth shut and appear stupid or open your mouth and remove all doubt!
Well as for your CARVING IT IS WONDERFUL! Keep it up!
As I was saying I have trouble spelling sometimes, I never was good at that subject!
And from time to time I will look at someone else’s comment and see if they commented with the same word I was going to use, then I use there spelling in hopes it would be spelled right.
In that chance if it was spelled CURVING! I would have also put in the word CURVING and not CARVING!
I use spell check and the paper thing that words are spelled in a lot!
Anyway this is most likely not what happened!
Just my 2 cents worth!
Thanks

I would have to think that some are trying to be funny with a play on misspelled words. It could be do to the couple female form carvings you have done or the one photo of you holding the coat of arms carving (slightly low cut blouse). This is all it takes to get the guys that have spent to much time alone in the shop all riled up to rut. I apologize for men being men instead of gentlemen.

Your carvings are fantastic and you are very talented. Keep up the good work and i look forward to your future projects. Do you use all hand tools or do you use a dremel type tool too?

p.s. Be aware when putting your 2 cents in, you only get a penny for your thoughts. You’re losing money. lol

Thanks everyone for your input on the subject. I hope I didn’t make my post sound as though I’m horribly mad or offended. I actually had a good chuckle over it, but was just curious if it’s becoming a common play on words to have a little fun with the jock-ettes, or if it was honest spelling mistakes. I just found it odd that 3 woodworkers in a row didn’t know how to spell carvings, lol! I assumed it wasnt by accident by the 3rd.

To answer the question above, I use NO power tools in my carvings what so ever. All done by hand with chisels (and mallet when extra force is needed).

Dennis, Sadly I still haven’t gotten the smaller palm chisels to better fit my hands, as $$$ is always tight, and the ends never seen to quite meet, but someday I will!! :-)

if it continues please let us know. Although it might have been a slip and it might have been found humorous it is still disrespectful since you don’t know the people

I hope they’re using a phone with auto correct and it truely was a mistake. I would like to think we’re above that. That being said, there are are always (unfortunately) a few who are not. I hope you can ignore the ignorant ones and continue gracing the rest of us with your projects.
