August Meeting - Introduction to Simple Decorative Carving

 Paul Rolfe

Tuesday, August 18 - Paul is a master carver who understands carving can be intimidating to woodworkers who would like to incorporate simple decorative carving in their work, but are beginners at the craft. His presentation will be focused on the basics of carving, with the aim of helping woodworkers get started. He will talk about tool selection, wood choices, layouts, wood grain considerations, etc.  He will also demonstrate basic techniques and with an emphasis on important do’s and don’t’s. Paul is well known as an excellent teacher/presenter on the subject of carving. He will not be here to “wow” us with his skills (that would be easy!), but to help us get started carving.

Host: Judy Sanwald
