#10 Want to know more about wood carving?
Does wood carving interest you? Are you fascinated by carve objects in the store or at the museum? Do you like wood, the feel, smell, look of good wood? Then you might want to check out the web site of Wood Carving Illustrated. It is one of the great resources available to the world’s wood carvers. I have placed the URL below.
This site has something for everyone. The galleries are filled with wonderful carvings by artists from around the world. Visitors can view the carvings, comment on them and even contact the artist via the site.
The chat threads provide all sorts of interesting and useful information. Beginners (newbies) can “listen in” on old hands discussing techniques and treatments. Long time carvers can share ideas and asked more detailed questions about the craft of carving.
One neat feature provided is the ability for carvers to take pictures of their work and to down load them on to the site for all to see. Artists can store albums of pictures which can be searched by all who visit the site.
One other feature anyone interested in carving might enjoy is are the teaching/training videos. These are great resources for the endless questions new and old carvers alike always have.
The Wood Carvers Illustrated web site is a social club on line. Many of the regulars have been chatting with each other for years. They meet each other on line and at shows around the country and the world. This site displays some of what makes the hobby of wood carving one of the best in the world, good people, eager to help, willing to share, a craft, an art, anyone can enjoy. Hope you enjoy the site as much as we do. Shalom.
