Looking for a fun and useful project for your club? How about these caricature name tags carved by Jim Oehmke for members of the Friends Carving Club, Port Orange, FL For your club, each member could carve their own, or perhaps one or two members might take on the task for a small fee for each carving.
The name tags were carved in basswood using a variation of Pete LeClair’s “carving on a corner” methodology. Names are drawn on with a stencil and then burned. The tags are secured to shirt or jacket with several rare-earth magnets on a strip of metal, which stick to several short wood screws set in the back of the carving.
