Recommended Resources: back to table of contents
The following two links are to sources of carving woods. Heineke comes to the Belleville woodcarving show each year and to other shows and provides excellent wood. Slim also comes to the Belleville show and has also attended our woodcarving shows.
Lynn Doughty is a western carver living in Oklahoma. He does a blog which provides tutorial on how he carves his characters with detailed
instruction. There is no cost to the blog. It is a great resource,check it out at Out West Woodcarving. The following pictures are examples of some of the carvings that he gives specific instruction on.
Gene Messar is a Flat Plane carver living on the Texas/Louisiana border. He has done a number of videos on youtube demonstrating the carving of santas, snowmen, Rufus and Sadie, hillbilly, wizard, hobo, halloween ghost, a scene with a dog treeing a raccoon in a tree and others. The following is a picture of some of his carvings.
Each carving is demonstrated in a series of short videos. If you have high speed internet these videos are free and helpful. It is a great resource, check it out at Whittler0507
