Ask Joe — Carving Videos

Ask Joe on WOM — Free Video Instruction

JoeDI haven’t writ­ten an Ask Joe arti­cle since I retired from the busi­ness of carv­ing about 6 years ago. Since retire­ment I carve and do oth­er forms of art for my enjoy­ment.

In Octo­ber 2013 I trav­eled to Jack­son Hole, WY, to teach wood­carv­ing to wound­ed vet­er­ans. It is because of these class­es and the need for begin­ners to get instruc­tions on wood­carv­ing, that I made some instruc­tion­al videos. In the future I plan on mak­ing more videos as need­ed.

Recent­ly I dis­cussed, with Matt Kel­ly (own­er and edi­tor of WOM),  about mak­ing these videos avail­able through WOM. There are 19 wood­carv­ing videos so far. To view or down­load the videos, just click HERE. then click on Wood­carv­ing at the top of the front page. You will find four videos are on sharp­en­ing; a cou­ple on the basics of carv­ing and a num­ber on var­i­ous projects.

If you view the videos, I would love to hear your com­ments and sug­ges­tions for future videos .

Enjoy the jour­ney of wood­carv­ing,
