Interested in learning how to do incised letter carving in wood? The Central Fraser Valley Woodcarvers club is offering a course on Wednesday, November 18, with a follow-up session the following week if needed or wanted.
The instructor is yours truly. We will be carving the word “Peace” in 1×5″ Aspen. If you have never carved a letter in your life or you want to hone your well-developed skills at lettering, the club welcomes students of all levels of experience.
You must have the following tools, or ones very close to these:
- 3/4″ chisel (bring other sizes if you have them),
- 1/2″ gouges in #3 and #5 sweep,
- 3/8″ gouge in #7,
- More gouges if you have them,
- Methods for holding the wood (double-sided carpet tape is great), the shop has vises at each table too.
The club meets on Wednesdays from 6-9 pm in the wood shop of Yale Secondary School. The cost of the course is $5 for members. There may be an additional fee for non-members (but membership is only $30).
I hope you can make it. Please let me know you are coming so I can bring enough wood for you.
