Title: Welcome to the Woodcraft and Carving section!
Post by: PetrifiedWood on March 30, 2012, 04:40:07 PM
We now have a large number of threads related to this topic, so we figured they deserved a place of their own. Whenever the forum needs room to grow in a specific direction, we want to make that happen. So in order to better categorize our database, we have created this new section for what has become one of our fastest growing topics lately... woodcraft and carving.

This is the place for posting natural handcrafts made at home or in camp.

Thanks for your participation and patience with the move. :)

I can whittle a pretty mean tent stake. Do I win anything?

On a serious note, I am enamored by the skill exhibited in this sub forum. I clearly lack  the skill to carve and whittle, and it makes me appreciate the talent that much more.  :thumbsup:

Hi Everyone

New member here, Your expert advice and ideas would be appreciated.

I make traditional wooden longbows and flatbows for a hobby and donate them to a local children's charity and I would like to know if anyone can create small ( 2 inch tall x 1 inch wide ) Wood Spirit/Forest Spirit carvings that I can attach to the ends of the bows.      ... 

The bows are made from Ash and Oak, backed with rawhide and of various styles.


Also,  any similar cravings I could attach to the bow limbs that would resist the vibrations and not self destruct.  lol

Any and all ideas and suggestions would be appreciated, . . regardless of how crazy they are. .

Many thanks

Nimitz

I too carve a mean tent stake, and for that matter an excellent coffee stirrer. I would have to say my coffee stirrers have no equal and i challenge anyone who believes they can whittle one that is better.

There is some seriously talented people here, unfortunately i am not one of them. :lol: :lol:
