What we did last meeting.....

We carved some of these little Santas at the last two carving club meetings. He's from a Dave Stetson pattern in the winter 2016 issue of Wood Carving Illustrated. Please contact us if you would like to learn how to carve things like these. Thanks for looking!

This pack of dogs is from the club's summer project, although there may be a few more still getting worked on! They were a lot of fun, as are all of Tom Wolf's patterns! You can also get rough outs for his dogs from Paige Cartledge at…/… . Fred Nahlen is trying to find out how many people would be interested in carving a Mike Shipley rough out of Uncle Sam. It would be a two day weekend class, possibly in January, and would be approximately $20-$25 plus the same cost for the rough out. But he needs to know how many would attend before he orders all the rough outs! Contact Fred at if you want to participate or have any questions.

Carving a Face Tutorial

This is an easy little tutorial that helps you make a study stick, progressing through the different steps. It also has you repeat all your cuts for each face, so you get to practice!

April 2016 Meeting

The April meeting will be the 16th at the First Christian Church of Sherwood on Kiehl Avenue. Be sure to bring stuff for show & tell, and Roger will probably have something for us to learn about. Roger and Dwayne seemed to be having a great time at the Renegade Woodcarvers Rendezvous in Lebannon, Tn. and they are sure to have some souvenirs and stories to share. We had a pretty good turn out last month and hope we see everyone this time! Here is a video of Roger playing the guitar with "Smooth Eddie and the Roughouts".

North Arkansas Woodcarvers show

I had a great time in Mountain Home this weekend, despite managing to catch a cold. Roger Stegal also had a table and we both did well in the competitions. We were also surprised to see some other members of the club visiting the show. Dwayne Kennedy, Jay Weaver, and Vernon Driscoll all made the trip up . Roger won four blue ribbons and I know at least two third places, in addition to winning the carving contest on Sunday! Woohoo! I got two blues, three reds, and three thirds, but my little bulldog also got third Best in Show and "Baby Fishing" was picked for the CCA Merit award. So our small club did pretty well! It was a lot of fun to talk with people about our carvings and meet a lot of well known carvers who were there. Adina Huckins was the judge and Sandy Smith and Randy Landen from the CCA were there. We saw Harold Enlow and his wife Elaine, Dale Heinecke and his wife Robin, and Larry Yudis had plenty of tools and stuff for sell. And Roger talked with Mike Shipley a bit!

Here's a few pictures!
