New tools from Slovakia.

A while back Eric Krizovensky posted a Juiper that he'd carved with some new tools. Eric gave me the information and I placed an order.

Yesterday I thought I'd give them a whirl on this piece of Nursery material.

The live veins on the top of this yew died of on repotting a couple of years ago. I thought I'd incorporate them in the design of the deadwood.

First job was to remove some of the old dead bark with a knife.

As I wanted a hollow trunk, the next job was to punch 5 holes up and down the trunk and then connect them. Because Rudi's carving bits are on 100-110mm shafts, this was quite easy.

Looks like you must be careful with those, they could eat your tree.

The only problem I had with the new tools was there sharpness compared with my older and duller cups but I soon got used to them.

Will,
In the picture of you carving it looks as if, either:

The shaft isn't all the way into the collet bottoming out
or
The shaft area that decreases is too far up the shaft
or
both.

Both are a problem.

These carvers keep getting longer and longer shafts and they can only take SO MUCH torque. Nice looking ( and nice carving!) but keep us informed on bending problems if they get caught.

Hello Dale. The bits were right down in the collett and I understand your concerns. The large cutter does have issues but I pushed the smaller cutters quite hard and had no problems.

What's this? The scalpelmeister attacking wood with power tools? Isn't that one of the signs of impending apocalypse?

Will you be bringing any carving equioment to Burrs, Will? My wee Elm needs.......something.

Will, did you treat the inside of the hollow trunk in some way that makes it look black, or is that just shadow in the picture?

"nursery material" - why do I never see trees like that in my local garden centres! Very impressive.

Thanks Pavel. I look forward to meeting you again too.

Bryan. Try and contact Tony Tickle and there may be places available at Burrs.

Steve. Always have used power tools but finished with the scalpel. See you soon....At last.

Thankyou Sam. Lots and lots of practice and observation is the way to go.

Hello Jun...Deep as you dare.

Hello Tom. I darkened the inside with some crushed charcoal to give contrast.

Thankyou kindly Morton. There is some more refinement to complete but I will wait to see hoe the wood weathers first. I tend to carve in two or three sessions and study between works.

Hi Will

Time will do some too. I also always works on the deadwood over several times, often more than three times. Even on the smaller shohin, it benefits to see how the deadwood reacts after it dries out when working on fresh branches.

Best regards
Morten

While we are on the subject of carving, what do you prefer, the manual or the with machines and why you prefer one above the other?
