Carving Seminar April 21-22 with Roger Stegal



Roger will be giving a caricature carving seminar for us the weekend of April 22-22 and it will run from 9am-5pm on both those days. I believe he has roughouts for a wizard/santa, a cowboy, and possibly a hillbilly. The cost is only $40 plus the cost of whatever roughouts you want. Contact Jim Baker or Fred Nahlen to sign up! This should be a lot of fun!


The club is also planning a three day seminar around September 28th with Janet Denton Cordell, famous for her realistic female, animal, and doll carvings. Take a look at some of her work here and plan to attend. The cost will be $185 plus the cost of a blank or roughout. A deposit may be required to reserve your spot. Contact Jim Baker or Fred Nahlen for details as soon as possible.

March Meeting

This Saturday, March 8th, is our next meeting, from 9am-11am at the electric building. We hope to have a good turn-out of members and lots of projects for show and tell. We hope to finalize possibly having Roger Stegal teach a class in April and possible Janet Denton Cordell in September. We had a great turn out last month with new members and visitors and hope to continue that trend!


I brought some knives last month, that I recieved as a gift from a carver in California. Jim Mayes is an accomplished carver and has been making and selling knives for some time. He saw some of my carvings that I had posted and decided my tool bag just wasn't complete without a couple of his knives. So he just sent me some! Carvers are really generous, sharing people. Here are some pictures of the knives. Jim does sell these (detail is $35 and roughout is $50) and hopes he can keep up with orders coming in! Here are a few pictures. His email is jimtcarver@yahoo.com .
