This group area was set up to allow folks to experiment with relief carving as a group.  Share ideas, techniques and advice.

 

Laser cut carving blanks have been made available for those of you interested in using them.  If everyone uses the same design it will be easier to share ideas and comment about them as a group.  But it is not a requirement.  Feel free to join in with the group if you would rather carve a different pattern and design.  I would ask however that you refrain from using more advanced subjects like figureheads and fully "in-the-round" subjects as it is beyond the scope of this group at this time.

You will notice a few "pinned topics" at the top of this group area.  These pinned topics were set up as an area for all to discuss those related subjects.  If you have a question or comment related to them please post within those topics so everyone can easily find them later.

 

Other than those pinned topics, we ask that you only create a mini-carving log of your own.  Please title it  similar to the example listed below.

 

"Chuck's carving log"

 

or maybe

 

"Chucks first attempt at carving"

 

It will work just like any  other build log.   This forum should not have any topics in it other than the properly named "carving logs" and pinned topics.  Should you want to ask a question or post something,  make sure it is posted in either a log or one of the pinned topics.  Dont start a new topic.  If for whatever reason you guys feel there is a need for a new pinned topic because your discussion doesnt relate to the ones already there....just let me know and I will start another one for you.  You know the drill....this basically works like all of the other group project areas.

 

Feel free to ask any questions about this group here.  All questions and comments are appreciated and very helpful.

Download the pdf here of the carving blank designs.  It shows the designs actual size and also enlarged for clarity.

 

The crown monogram is the easiest in my opinion and I recommend you start with that one.  You will notice some red lines and arrows on the PDF.....They represent the wood grain and also a cheat sheet for deciding what direction you should slice in and where your stop cuts are located.... 

 

A more detailed explanation will follow and be placed in the pinned techniques......topic very soon!!!

CARVING BLANKS ARE AVAILABLE

 

WE HAVE THEM IN STOCK NOW, BUT WE ARE HAVING A DELAY IN GETTING THESE BLANKS LISTED ON THE NRG STORE. 

 

To order until the store is updated, call the NRG Office or send an email, and give Mary your name, etc. and a credit card number and we will ship them out.  The attached form has the office number, email address and info to supply.

Don:

Send it in two emails - then it's surely safe.    Or we can call you and you can give us the card number - we have your phone  number and address in the NRG member files.- Shipping will be the same - it's a small CD shipping box and the weight is insignificant.

The carving blanks are in the mail to everybody who ordered today.  Everybody's ordering multiple sets (the shipping is the same for one or several sets).

Are there any plans on doing the blanks in diffrent scales and perhaps different types down the road?

 

Thanks Chuck for putting this together and who ever else involved
