Beginners tutorials and links
Grab your Band aids, Knife, Wood, and Carving Protection, your sure to find a carving project among these links,
This area is intended to aid the beginning carver find projects on the web to aid in their carving experience.
theres a lot of Free tutorials around and i hope to post links here to join the potential carver and knowledge together
First: And most recent
Here is another step-by-step tutorial on the creation of a carvers study stick of good ole St Nicks face.
By using this tutorial a carver can practice carving the face on a 12x1x1 inch stick, or tree limb, after some experience of making several they can be made easily in a few minuets and the completed sticks can be passed on to other beginner carvers to give them a project with visual reference, that they can learn.
Tools: only requires a knife , while some palm tools make it easier, there not necessary
Tom H. and myself used Google documents to collaborate on this document it really looked better in Google documents than it dose finely posted in WCI, because of the limit of 4 pictures on a single post, so the tutorial is spread across 4 posts... but it works,
many thanks to Tom H.
