Title: Carving tools wanted
Post by: bbrown on November 29, 2019, 05:42:20 PM
Hello folks,

I'm starting 18th century carving classes (period woodworking too) at my shop in Camden, Maine this Spring and am in need of "student sets" of carving tools.
If anyone has some quality carving tools (Swiss Made, for example), I'm in great need.  Thanks.

If anyone's interested:
Teachers include Alf Sharp, Alexander Grabovestskiy, Ray Journigan, and others of like caliber.  Beginner to advanced classes are offered.
Other than the strictly classical carving and lettering classes, there will be project classes that involve a lot of carving:  The John Elliot Stool, a Traditional Sconce with shells and gooseneck molding, etc.
Alf Sharp will teach how to carve everything for a Chippendale highboy!
Hand tool guru, Graham Blackburn will teach a traditional chest class entirely with hand tools.
Matt Kenny will guide students through the making of a classic tea chest.
