Interesting Stuff

Things Of Interest to a Carver, Artist or Craftsperson.

 

Let me know if you know of something or run across an item that would be of interest to those of us who strive to make things with our hands. I will add links to carving shows and other clubs that I know of. But if you have any other ideas,  or if you come across something you think would be of interest to others, let me know and it may appear here if is noteworthy ....   and in good taste!
