Email-based woodcarving discussion groups are wonderful ways to learn and help others learn about woodcarving. Email from the list group is sent to the list server which in turn forwards the message to everyone in the group. The woodcarver lists vary greatly in group norms - some permit little off-topic chat, some tolerate a small amount and some encourage off-topic chat.
The WoodCarver List, a service of the Carvers' Companion, is an on-line community of over 800 carvers. A great
place to ask questions, get tips, and talk about woodcarving.
