More Stuff!

Here is a cane carved by Mike Pounders with a hunting scene and some bark carvings by the Butlers. The cottonwood bark that was harvested was successfully given away and I believe everyone took a few pieces. We should see lots of bark carvings at the September meeting!

























I am working on several different things as an effort to advertise our existence and possibly attract new carvers and members. I got the additional contact info and a link to this web page added to the Wood Carving Illustrated web site. Jason Pipe actually contacted us through WCI posts I had made. I am also working on some T-shirt designs, that might possibly give us some more local advertising. I'll post some pictures when I get a chance.

May Meeting

There were about eight people in attendance this month. It was good to see Miss Lou back and Vernon Driscoll dropped in for a bit also. We have a potential new member, Jason Pipe, from Malvern. He has been carving for a few months and brought some Opinel knives in that he's has been carving on.
 
Here are some of the eggs from last months project that we worked at during the meeting. Sally and Jim Butler did the colorful ones and mine is the wood-burned one. Quite challenging to carve an egg shape!








We also had a small menagerie of animals with Lou's donkey and another of Fred's Razorbacks.












I'll post some additional pictures later.... trying to spread them out a bit, since we won't be meeting for a while! Please email me any pictures or links you might want posted!

This will be the last meeting for about 3 months, so be sure and try and make it! If you have ever wanted to try bark carving, then try and make it. We will be giving away free cottonwood bark gathered from a storm-damaged tree in NLR. Free! I have different sizes and pieces, so come and get it!
