    Wood carving?

    Does woodcarving count as a Neader skill? Or should I be in another forum?

    Oh yeah
    Wood chips on the floor don't know where they come from or how they got there.

    If you carve lathe-turned pieces with a rotary tool, what forum does it go in?

    Welcome to the forums, Richard. I don't know how many carvers are hiding around here, but I'd think somewhere here in Handtool Haven is the place for woodcarving, so I moved it here from the Old Iron area. Let's see if we can stir some of the carvers here out of the woodwork.

    I've been a pretend carver for many years and only have a few modest pieces I'd even claim.

    Last night our Woodworkers' Guild hosted a member who is noted for his carving abilities. In a few minutes he'd transformed a log into an amazing wood spirit. The demonstration as well as his explanations were right on and really encouraged me to try to finish a totem pole I'd started several years ago.

    The wood chips are flying!

    I've done a bit of carving but don't have the patience for the avocation as a regular thing. Having some carving knowledge and experience can add a lot to other projects, whether flat or spun.
