When to carve?

Post  Marco Giai-Coletti on Sat Jun 30, 2012 9:43 pm

Hi All

New to carving. When should I do it, i.e. straight away after the bark has been peeled off or wait for the exposed wood to dry and then have a go at it?

hi,

fresh wood peels much easier so you will get very nice grooved jin and texture if you use hand tools and jin pliers. Properly dried out wood cuts cleaner with machine cutting bits but you dont get the tiny natural looking grooves achieved by hand

i guess its down to the tools of choice

Cheers Marcus

Thanks Marcus. I'll experiment with some tree branches in the garden first.
