If you’re interested in wood carving then this could be the most important message you will ever read.

Since you’ve found this website I suppose it’s ok to let you know… “I’m a true lover of wood carving .” The truth is, I’m always on the internet looking for the best information on how to carve wood properly. That’s what led me to put this website up. Let me explain…

While surfing around the internet, I stumbled upon something so fantastic that it immediately got my attention… In fact, I discovered something so amazing that at first, I thought it was “too good to be true” like most things are.

You see, a few months ago, I was actually doing some research on wood carving. I noticed that most of the websites were available on the internet aren’t giving valuable information.

Well, this got me curious and so I started digging a little deeper.

I Uncovered One Of The Most Important Wood Carving Manuscripts Of All Time.

On this site much valuable information. Here’s just a snippet of what you’ll learn:

  • All about trees and how they are transformed from raw timber into quality finished wood – ready for the craftsman.
  • Discover how the timber is taken through its refining process – like the kiln drying technique. This is all part of the preparation in making timber that is ready to use for the consumer.
  • What wood is in fashion – and what wood is best for your job.
  • All about the varied timbers available – there are so many beautiful timbers to choose from. There are hardwoods, soft timber, and in-between timbers.
  • How the grain of the wood affects carving – if you carve the wrong way (i.e. against the grain) then your work will be weak.
  • Why the workshop or studio can help considerably when carving – discover how to set up your area in the least possible space.
  • What tools you’ll need – to be able to carve with ease and speed. Learn what you’ll need and where to get them or make some of them.

And there are loads more…

Wood carving is my passion and I want to share it with as many people as possible. Believe it or not, I’ve decided to do something completely unheard of these days. I’m going to let you have this amazing manuscript for nothing.
Now you have no excuse for not being able to carve out a beautiful figure out of wood and attract comments from everyone who sees it.

So without any further adieu, let’s get started…

We look forward to your stay.
