Al has been learning a new art formAs hard as it may seem, Al has been learning a new art form this past week. He has been a wood worker since…..well, forever. He grew up in the wood working shop his grandfather built, and his dad took over. He has been doing very detailed carvings for the past 10 years, but, he has never chisel carved. Al bid a job a few months ago to replicate a piece of furniture a client had. They decided to go ahead with the project, and he has been learning something new. Al has always used his power carver to create his art. So this was definitely something different.
He quickly learned that he didn’t have all the tools to do this project. Chisels can only do so much, carving knives are what he needed. They are super sharp, and allow for more freedom in creating curved work, that chisels just can’t do.
