    The psychology of these things is interesting . Beautiful stuff to US residents ,but different from seeing our money.Enjoy the rest. When will we see something international ? maybe WOODEN vomit!

  9. Hi my name is Margie. My husband Jerry and I are gathering a few things to start learning to carve. I'm reading posts to see what I can about carving so continue to post with pictures. Very helpful. i want mainly to do chip carving and he is interested in learning Love Spoon carving. We're both disabled so large projects are out. He's a Vietnam vet who now needs something to keep him occupied. Our knives and strops have arrived as have his sharpening stones. I'm waiting on my ceramic stones. Hope to start carving soon. Found out last night Kansas City has a Wood Craft store. Went there today and they were very helpful,even have us information a local wood carving group. Any advice would be appreciated.

    margie....very pleased to meet you. my advice to you is start by enjoying the carving...not the product. what i mean is the act of carving can be very satisfying all by itself. don't pay too much attention to the final outcome at first. learn to keep your tools as sharp as possible. it makes ALL the difference. if i use a tool for five minutes i give it a quick tune up. after you feel comfortable with the tools pick some simple designs and go for it. now you have the physical enjoyment of carving and the satisfaction of creating. anything i can do to help along the way ...please ask. joining a group can be very helpful.

    good luck.....make a pile of wood chips!

    Cigar Box


    That is one fine looking box. It should bring out some nice bids.
