Tips and Techniques
The great thing about woodcarvers is that they are willing to share their knowledge and often have great tips and techniques to pass along to fellow woodcarvers.
Continuing this tradition, you will find some handy tips and techniques submitted by our members. Should you have a great tip to pass on please feel free to send us an e-mail with "tips and techniques" in the subject line and we'll add it to the collection.

Greg Wirtz, one of our instructors for the Doane Experience came up with a great idea to re-purpose a stand used in storing scissors for scrapbooking.
This stand can be purchased at Hobby Lobby. It comes with a set of craft scissors that you could use or pass along to someone interested in crafting or scrapbooking, maybe donate to your nearest elementary school.
Greg has found that his Denny knives fit quite well in the stand. Since the stand has a carousel base, he is able to see the blades of the knives and gouges by spinning the stand.
