Demystifying Wood Grain by Brandant Robinson

Brandant Robinson of the The Old Stump blog posted a primer on demystifying wood grain. It provides a good overview of a subject that I know a number of carvers struggle with. Have a look and let me know what you think and be sure to thank Brandant  for his efforts.

Baylor Armstrong Browning Library

Doug Oliver sent along the following photos he took on a visit to the Armstrong Browning Library on the Baylor University campus. I think fine art in a place of learning can inspire the student. Thanks, Doug.

2011 North Texas Wood Carvers Guild Rhapsody in Wood Show

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the 2011 Rhapsody in Wood Show & Sell put on by the North Texas Wood Carvers Guild. I saw some great carvings, turnings, wood burnings and scroll saw work. The best part, however, was visiting with some very fine individuals.

If you attended the show, let me know what you thought. If not, and you happen to be in the North Texas area on the first weekend of March 2012, I'd love to see you at the next Rhapsody in Wood show.
