A year ago today I ordered my 1st carving bar. Not the most exciting thing to most people but sure some of you understand my excitement. I want to thank everyone here that has put up information, pictures and advise. I have learned a lot in the last year just from this kind of information. I call myself self taught but with help via the web from other carvers..
I recently started watching some of the seminars at Ridgway. There is something to learn from every one of those videos. Very cool that you guys share the videos and stand up to speak at these events.
I have posted a few of my carvings on the forum here and will continue in the next year. I have a lot of new goals and hope to show improvements through the photos. I carved up the last couple pieced of oak I had laying around this last month and hope to collect some larger pieces of wood this weekend. Will see what we can make out of them. Spring is here in Minnesota and its time to get busy. I wish you all a great summer and hope one here I day pay back to the carving community and help someone else.
