    just got back from a week's campout with some friends and one guy gave me this for teaching him some fire craft. I will treasure it since he has had it for a long time and meant a lot to him but he gave it to me.

    Got some paint on a little hiker. He looks a little crazy, so he needs a good name. I'm thinking Maniacal Pete, but I'm open to suggestions. :)

    I know this about us carving but had to show this; a gift from a fisherman friend for helping him get a knife. It is totally out of wood.

    Growing up, I had the good fortune of watching and learning a little from my uncle who, in his day, carved pieces for museums in Canada. His pieces were quickly snatched up, but I inherited this tom. It still motivates me to learn and improve. I would love to hear about your mentors and motivations.

    There's some really talented people on here. This is about the extent of my whittlin'.
    [​IMG]
    This is the type of stuff I normally do. I've posted these pics in another thread, but since they were already in my photobucket album I thought I'd throw them in too.

    Mostly miniatures
    My Esee 4, Cold Steel Secret Edge, X-acto knife.
    I usually leave my pieces unfinished
    Most of my pieces just sit around on my counter, I give some away.
    I carve a large verity of animal figurines so there really is no far out one. I did whittle a rose once.
    What I have pics of on my phone:

    I am interested in carved wood signs, so I am starting with a small indoor sign for a kitchen.
    Lumber yard cedar (western red I assume) and the eggs are Manitoba Maple (Box Elder) (Acer negundo).

    [​IMG]

    I am planning on some paint on this one, so there is more progress to come still.

    I like it SeaCapt. I recently picked up a used book on nautical carving.
    May not be much call for it these days, but I find it interesting enough to read the book.

    A handle for a cane I carved in high school. Rawr! Bear!

    And two little guys, about an inch tall, keep me company. The elephant has four separate legs! Carving tools were definitely used in all three of these carvings.

    That Turkey is amazing. My grandfather was a surgeon who carved birds in his retirement. He was quite good at it and his wife painted them, I really wish I had gotten some of his tools or some of his carvings. Barron Brown got me addicted to carving bowls and spoons this spring at the Piedmont Earthskills Gathering this spring.

    I was lucky to get the one piece after his passing. I hope you can locate one of your grandfather's pieces. It is one of my prized possessions, given the type of man he was.

    I may get one of his pieces one day.

    You must have had a deep affection for your uncle.

    I wish I had a closer relationship with my grandfather. My grandmother and I were always close. I really wish I had known my Grandfathers parent's. That would haVE BEEN INTERESTING. Opps, caps lock.

    Peace

    I started whittling little people just a couple of weeks ago, these are no 2, 3 and 4.
    The little bald old geezer is 2 inches high and the farmer is 5 inches high.

    Started working on an egg/spherical object for whittling practice that's very generic, but that's mainly an excuse to bump this cool thread back up to the front page of this subforum.

    My interpretation of Boo Radly's soap carvings of Jem and Scout Finch. A cousin asked me to make these as she was reading To Kill a Mockingbird in class.
