Projects From Will Hayden
The late Will Hayden was a long-time member of the Caricature Carvers of American and a prolific carver. He was also a long-time member of the Woodcarver List and participant in the World Wide Woodcarving Exchange. Will was always eager to share — advice, carvings, patterns, projects — anything to advance the art. In his later years, Will repeatedly give me permission to use any of his photos in WOM and on CarversCompanion.com to further promote the art and craft. Will’s family has graciously re-affirmed that consent, and so in the issue we’ll begin a series of carving tips, hints, patterns and instruction from Will’s own photo gallery.
The first installment is a gallery of carved Woodcarvers’ Name Tags — a perfect project for a club to undertake to help identify their members, or for a friendly competition between members. To visit the Name Tags photo gallery, click HERE. Enjoy!
