    I will get it goin Kevin. First of all, thanks for the new forum. I hope it's as successful and all of the others on WB.
    I am a hand carver, that being, I don't use any power tools for carving ( not that thats a bad thing.) My tools
    are flex cut and pfeil tools. What does everyone else use? You can see some of my carvings on my website.
    I enjoy doing the old world santa's and some of the nowegian stuff as well. Cowboys are also a favorite.

    This is great! I still love hand carving, though I haven't done any in a long time. Here are some photos of an adjustable carving stand I made to fit on a table, a Catalpa stump I put a green man on, and a Lee Valley vise that holds a lathe chuck, so I could work on pieces directly off the lathe, and hold round things easier. Trouble with that is, I too soon need to use the chuck, but it works well, and can take a beating.

    That chuck holder is cool, but I might have to fabricate one, since I'm too cheap to pay Lee Valley Prices:sarcastic:

    It would be great if someone had some tips on sharpening carving tools, the straight edged ones are easy enough, but gouges with sweeps are tough for me...

    Just now found this forum, I am more of a whittler than carver. I have whittled a ball in a cage, a 3 link chain and a small wood puzzle.

    I am looking for some patterns or whittling magazines that have some patterns in them for wooden mechanical whimsies. So if you have some lying around please let me know. It is too cold to be in the shop now so I have sharpened up my knives and am ready to making shavings.
