Wanted to take a minute and say hello from Castle Hayne, NC. I just joined NCWoodworker. Been hand carving works of wood art for about 30 years, Started HipShot Wood Carving in 2003 with our website www.hipshotwood.com . Since then we have shipped original works and commission carvings worldwide. I hope to learn from you all and if possible, share some of what I have learned with the group.

Thanks again everybody! Glad to be with you all.
Thanks Brian - Following on IG now!
I think with all the interest that when this Pandumbic thing is over, maybe we could cajol you into doing a class. Just pick something and have a few helpers to guide and direct a small group of "Wannabe" carvers! just a thought!
