Making a Wood Carving

January 9, 2012

A wood carving of a Wester SandpiperI am trying to teach myself to carve wood caricatures. I am in need of free patterns. I am retired, and don't want a big money output for my hobby. Anyone, interested in wood carving that can help me out?

You might want to check out your local library for books about carving. At our small library, they can order books from any other library in the county system if they don't have what you need onsite.

Both great idea's plus I would also check online for any wood carver clubs! They are all over the country and the folks I met were so very nice and helpful!


They even offer free programs (using their supplies) to show folks their hobby!

This photo was taken at the Neptune Festival in Virginia Beach. Walking along the boardwalk, I saw these two parrots, and my creativity kicked in.

This is actually a carving I made (first one) after attending a great local woodcarving event called "Roundup!" These are offered all over the country and I would recommend them to everyone.

This is a relief woodcarving I made of a garden in China. The doorways are in the shape of the moon for esthetic value and are designed to bring about a peaceful feeling.


They are so lovely, I think. I included my bonsai plant as well.
