Mountain Man in Full Relief
The project this nationally known wood carver and instructor from Broomfield CO has created for this year's woodcarving rendezvous is a Mountain Man in basswood, carved in full relief. The basswood rough out measures approximately 14 inches by 4 inches by 3 inches. A brief discussion on facial anatomy and the placement of facial features on your rough out will take place before carving begins. Emphasis in the class will be in assisting each carver with obtaining an enjoyable experience in carving the Mountain Man rough out. Each carver will be carving off of an Instructor supplied carving bench and vice. I will help each carver set up their rough out on the carving vice for safe carving. I mainly use #3, #5, #7, #9, and #11 sweeps in carving tools and a small set of micro tools ranging from 2-5 mm gouges. Also, a couple of sharp bench and detail carving knives would be helpful. A carving mallet is helpful but not extremely necessary. B/I/A Max 10 Min 6 Cost: $95 plus $35 for the blank.
