Hello from Nova Scotia I joined this group yesterday, I am a wood carver and live just out Truro NS. I am a member of the Truro Carvers. I prefer to carver caricatures rather then wild life. I carve in white pine, basswood, eastern white cedar, yellow cedar, poplar, cypress knees and any other wood that lands in my shop.

Welcome aboard, NS. Carvers make great Lumberjocks. There is always someone asking questions about woodcarving and we love to see all of the nice woodcarvings that are posted. Have fun and welcome aboard.

Welcome aboard, how do you like carving ‘white pine’, I have heard that this wood
is great for those of us that use knives and other edge tools, but I wonder how white
pine will carve using power tools? Enjoy the group and just carve to your heart’s content.

Welcome! I bet it’s lovely where you are now. I envy your talents. I always felt, I could “learn woodworking”, but carving to me is a talent you have to just “have”. Although one of my bucket list items is a ball -n- claw foot.
