Merry Christmas-Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our followers and all who just stop by the blog. I thought I'd post this greetings before Ol' Thomp got up out of bed today. Well that an if waited too long I'd probably forget. Thanks to the followers and the number of folks who stop by, this blog will continue to grow. Thomp started the blog as a place to put carving beginner information. I joined Thomp in his efforts and together we have not only become great friends, but now can count numerous others as friends too. And for that we thank you all. As the new year starts, we will be doubling our efforts to present more carving information and such for Beginners and Beyond. And to assist in this effort we need your help. Please let us know, through the comments here, what you would like to see posted. Are there any projects you'd like to have us feature, any questions to answer, any tips to offer, just about any thing related to wood carving. Ol' Thomp an me may not know the answers or have the plans, but now we have lots of carving friends that we can ask to share their knowledge and information. Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays, Ol' Thomp and Tom H

Merry Christmas to you both also! Thomp I'm hoping your feeling better.

Theres a few things I'd like to learn in the new year.

One. I would like to find a very good sturdy pocket knife for carving and my carvings will have fine detail so a small blade included would be great.
Two. I also need to find a non shiney finish for my carvings.
Three. I'd like to know how to know how dry wood has to be for carving. I have my own downed basswood trees here and its frustrating not knowing how to process it for carving wood.
