Re: UPDATE: Carving in the Round by Andrew Thomas and How to Carve Wood by Richard Butz

I think the last time I carved something was when I was a Boy Scout, neckerchief slides, doodles, nothing much nor nothing impressive. Now that my son in in Cub Scouts, I've/we've returned to carving. He's been woodworking with me since he was 3 or 4, and now it's time to add to our repertoire. He's dying to make a rattlesnake neckerchief slide like mine and I'd like to improve my flat carving skills as well.

Re: Watch someone turn a lamp shade (it's better than that sounds, really)

Obviously not woodturners commenting here. How do you think bowls are made? Most aren't cored. Ever see how much waste there is in sawing flat lumber? Did you know that woodturners typically use the bits of wood that mills or others leave in firewood piles because they're not straight enough, long enough, etc?
