Let’s get started, if you have an interest, in woodcarving or think it may be something you would like to pursue.
There are some things you will need, like a knife and a piece of wood.
Your new adventure can begin as simple as whittling on a stick, or creating
a fine piece of sculpture. You can take your new adventure as far as your mind
for a man, and he does not count the days
he or she spends whittling, or fishing.
In other words this is a very enjoyable pastime.
I have been told by many that they don’t have the patience for that kind of
hobby, “It teaches you patience”.
is keep your fingers out of the way, and always have a
sharp tool. Because you will force a dull tool, and a tool should simply slice
the wood instead of having to force it. Sharp tools go where you want them to.
Always have band aids handy!!
you will want to learn more about every aspect of your new
hobby. There is knifes, chisels, and power tools. You will learn to wood burn,
and paint your works of art. We will be going more into the different aspects
available to you in further posts.
As always I want your feed back, and questions.
