Hand Made Wooden Banjo

  Jody Webb brought a banjo he made to class. All the parts are custom made down to the hand carved tuning pegs. In addition to making such a beautiful instrument, Jody serenaded us during class.        

North Texas Woodcarving Guild Show 2019

Last weekend was the 2019 North Texas Woodcarving Guild Spring show at the Grapevine Convention Center. Attendance was up this year and there were many great works on display. I enjoy encouraging carvers and spreading interest in the art form. I spent most of the time answering questions about carving and providing some impromptu instruction. The side effect of so much activity is that I did not get many photos of all there was to see. One photo I did get was of Jody Webb's table with the three first place ribbons he won. Congratulations Jody! If you made it to the show, I'd love to hear your thoughts. If you did not make it, I hope to see you there next year.

2018 North Texas Wood Carver's Guild Show Recap

It's taken a couple of weeks for me to post this, but here are some photos from the 2018 North Texas Wood Carver's Guild "Rhapsody in Wood Show". We had a great time seeing the work of wood carvers, scroll saw artists, wood turners, guard carvers, and more. I had the opportunity to demonstrate carving techniques, sharpening methods, design ideas, and learning to draw with a wide variety of people. Thank you to everyone who came! Here is a shot from the show floor. This was my table with some carvings on display and my carving demonstration station. Jody Webb smiling with his first place and merit award winning carving. Following is a sampling of first place winners from various categories.

Crosses by Jody Webb

I received some questions about the crosses with floral decorations on my table at the North Texas Wood Carvers show this year. These were carved by Jody Webb who was sharing the table with me that weekend. Following are some close up photos of Jody's work: As a bonus, here is a clock that Jody carved. Please let me know if you have any feedback or questions that you would like me to relay to Jody.

North Texas Wood Carver's Guild Show 2014

This weekend I had a great time at the North Texas Wood Carver's Guild Rhapsody in Wood show. I had the opportunity see a lot of great carvings and talk to a number of talented carvers as well as up and coming carvers. It is this time with people who share an interest in wood carving that I like best about the show. I really enjoy answering questions, demonstrating technique and learning new things. Below are some photos I took while there. Let me know your thought on the show, especially if you were there. This year I had the pleasure to share my table with Jody Webb. The three crosses on the right of the table are Jody's. Whittling contest On a final note, the show had to end early due to an unseasonal (for Texas) ice storm.
