    Carver in need

    Hi all, I'm out of my forum and don't frequent that often nowadays. I'm based in Bolton and in need of a big lump of oak ( approx 3ft dia, 6ft ish) for a commission that is long overdue, and I might lose it if I don't get this sorted. I've been let down numerous times by a guy who has a log he promised me....and it's doing ma nut in. So. Can anyone help? Wether it be something you could help with, or suggestions, contacts,....Etc Anything is much appreciated, thanks.. Rick

    what level of detail?

    I believe the thing to do is go as far as you " dare" with the saw without ruining something you've spent hours on, especially smaller more delicate pieces which need intricate detail. If the finish for e.g. requires a sanded smooth look, then other tools it is .... but if you've pushed as far as you can with the saw, you will improve, get closer to your finished piece and as a happy bonus, have less sanding etc to do. Don't get me wrong, I like using my hands and chisels, it's a nice way to work but not to remove wood fast.

    I saw the quick vid you'd made of the trail on FB I think. Awesome work, brilliantly executed.

    Lion and a couple of bulldogs

    They're ace, loads of character! I've been playing about with painting carvings for about a yr now. It can really add to a piece.
