I teach woodcarving classes in my studio as well as other venues. The current schedule is listed on our classes page on this web site.
The list is linked here for whereever is convenient or sounds irresistable to you.

Carving in Cortona, Italy This opportunity may be offered again in the future:Toscana Americana

I have joined the carvers represented by , and was filmed for two tutorial videos in April, 2010. They are in the editing process for now, but will be available in a couple of months. One is on carving fairy doors, and the other is carving Celtic knots.

I also teach classes at the Woodcraft store on Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell in May, 2011. I will be teaching a one day class on a Sunday, on relief carving a bread board. The class listings begin on this link to their web page.

I will be demonstrating chainsaw carving or handcarving, depending on weather conditions that day at Burton Emporium and Gallery near Lake Burton in May, 2011. I think it is on Saturday the 7th.

See my chainsaw carvings on this page.

Four pictures of boxes follow that I carved out of basswood. They were commissioned by the Queen of Meridies in the SCA reenactment group. Their purpose is to hold the crowns in transit.

The box style is a simple construction, 9th century, 6-sided box. The front is hand carved and painted or stained. The finish is hand rubbed tung oil and then waxed. They are used in SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) re-enactment as event boxes most often. It is a perfect way to hide things like cameras, wallets, and other 21st century items out of site while having a handy stool or table top.
