Hi, this is a great wood carving video. Very skilfully done and an excellent tutorial for beginners to follow. Where do you get your craft supplies from and also the wood for working on? Also what do you do with the finished product? Do you sell these carvings and for what purpose are they created? I am merely trying to understand why I would love to do this myself. I like what you have achieved here. Thank you for sharing this skill.

Nice work! Before gouging - Wouldn't a stop cut along the lines be helpful so you can gouge & it will hit the stop line without going outside the line.

Besides his skillfulness in carving and using tools, the sharpness of gauges is beyond normal sharpening skills. Imagine your tools are not 100% sharp and you pluck one part unintentionally and "You are done".

What do you think of birch for carving?

Author — Rudy Barry


what kind of wood do you use? it looks like it cuts so well compared to when I do. When I cut the wood it isn't smooth it has a lot of crevices in it. I have been using pine. do you know if that is the wood or just my technique

Are you using a laminated wood of some kind? Or is it a base coat of paint/stain on the wood?
