Now in its fifthteenth year of publication, Woodcarver Online Magazine (WOM) is the first on-line "e-zine" for woodcarvers, by woodcarvers. Published six times a year, WOM is filled with reports of major carving events, how-to articles, patterns, book and video reviews, photo galleries, and regular features such as Notes From The 'Net and Pyrograffiti. WOM is always free to all, thanks to the support of a fine group of publishers, carving supply, service and tool vendors.

The November/December issue of WOM is now available ! Click the WOM logo to visit the gateway page.






 The World Wide Woodcarver Exchanges (W3E) are an ongoing series of carving exchanges. There is no fee charged, but you must be a member of one of several woodcarving mail groups. (See the Resource Files below). Click the logo to visit the W3E page.




The WoodCarver List, established in 1996, is the oldest carving-related discussion list on the 'web. Something over 800 carvers subscribe to the List, where a variety of woodcarving topics are discussed by carvers ranging from season pros to newbies with their first tool. Have a woodcarving question? The List is the place to ask. Click the logo for more information or to subscribe.

NEW - The Woodcarver List has a Facebook group as an adjunct to the List. The Facebook group now gives us a place to post photos of recent projects, etc. To visit the group, click HERE or search for Woodcarver List on Facebook.




The newest addition to the Carvers' Companion, the Virtual Carving Studio project will tap the carving collective to design and virtually equip a studio or shop, complete with functional space plans and suggested lists of tools and equipment.   This will provide a freely available resource for any carver to utilize in the future.
