The Woodcarving Lesson that will Change your carving forever.

The Woodcarving Lesson that will Change your carving forever.

No b.s. this is the single most important woodcarving lesson i learned after learning to carve. I should have done this years ago.
This is also the third installment of the beavercraft series. I got some beavercraft tools. They do work and cut and are overseas and cheap. I was surprised.
This is chip carving!!!

    This was actually the first one I learned. However, I know a few master carvers and one of them taught me the inside out pyramid when he gave me my first (actual) woodcarving knifes. he gave me a chip carve blade similar to the one used here, and a super thin, super narrow very pointy detail knife, explaining that its nearly needle shape was for geting in to finish (a missed connection) or pop out the chip cut without adding pressure to the grain that the thicker chip carve blades will present.
    I always called the scalop cut a roll cut because the way you roll the blade.
    One friend is an absolute wonder and I wish I could show some of his work. it is unbelievable. His specialty obsessions are penguins and hats. Penguins sounds odd or simple but this guy is beyond OCD detailed, every feather has plumes and quill and is lifelike even without paint. His hats, look exactly like real hats, some have cloth texture, some like woven straw. Same thickness as cloth felt or straw hats (mostly cowboy or fedora). He is way off grid and refuses pictures or phones in his presence. Its his trigger. Yeah he knows they spy and all that crap, but its peoples addictions and obsessions with them that he absolutely hates.
    I do have a picture of me in one somewhere, but was a hat he left with a friend. That one was only 100$. now that the art crowd in san fransisco found him, his penguins go for about 2500$ and the hats around 15-1800 (he will customize the fit if you travel to his county).
    A little crazy, 10 miles past the last powerline or phone, but great workers to learn from. I just wish I could get out there more and work with one of these guys a while.
    Good video. As you said, its not just for decoration, but good for strategic depth/ spacing wood removal so youre not just digging around with a blade.

    I need these types of videos… get so aggravated at times when I can see what I want to carve but just can’t figure it out on the wood. Thank you so much! Jer
