    Online Carving class

    Ok here is the pattern we will be using for this online carving class, there is three pictures of the same pattern an I will explain each one
    This pattern comes from Lora S. Irish


    Attachment 85975

    Main Pattern please have this one printed to the size of your wood
    Next one is showing the main lay out lines to be transferred to your wood I use carbon paper for this

    Attachment 85976

    As you can see the dark lines is what is transferred to the wood

    Attachment 85977

    Next number each area like this this is the different levels of this carving it will help you when we get started, remember go off your main pattern

    Reminder the online class starts on 30 October this year there is no time limit in doing this but please ask questions here in this thread an post pictures as you go

    Looks like fun but challenging.

    -Will you have a "finished" project that we can look at to see how it should look when it is completed (completed by someone who knows what they are doing. )

    -Under normal conditions for a beginner, what is a realistic time frame for completing the project? And for yourself, how long would it take you to complete?

    Just curious. Thanks. Rob

    Roy,
    What material - Basswood, etc?

    What size material - thickness?

    If we know that, we can have it on hand and be ready when the class starts.

    I'll be able to get back on this in a bit over a week, pretty sure I have some pieces of wood that'll work!

    Will be watching in the meantime

    Here is an example I did a last year, it took 2 weeks to do. Also It was burned some an painted
    I figured its going to take someone about 1 month if they put 1 hour per day 4 times a week

    to those who were involved with this thread.. the art that was posted by roy has been deleted by him, due to a possible copyright infringement.. the art was for sale by the creator in a book and on line.. which you can do by going to lori irish's website.. the future of the class is up to roy.. sorry for the inconvenience this may have imposed on anyone, but we need to stand by what is right..

    Everyone I removed the Pattern due to I didn't know I was violating a Copy right I will be post a new picture of a fish, it is a Butterfly Peacock Bass, I will post the pictures with in a couple days, When I do classes here an at woodcraft the students get the book so there is no copyright issue. I have been talking to Lora an we are working together on a pattern for me to use on forums but its going to take some time
