Finally - a Carving Class!
This has been a long time coming - I'm thrilled to announce that Dennis Patchett is going to be teaching a woodcarving class at my shop. Without a doubt, woodcarving is one of the most requested classes from students. I couldn't find a better instructor, or a nicer fellow, than Dennis.
Dennis has been carving for decades, and his period reproduction furniture might be some of the best work being made in our country. I'm not exaggerating.
Since this is the first time a carving class is being offered, I had to figure out some logistics - most people don't have carving tools in their arsenal yet. So - your enrollment in this class will get you a very sweet FlextCut carving knife; it's yours to keep. Sweet!
Hopefully, you'll get the carving bug and get many years of use from your knife.
Dennis will be going over some pertinent carving information - including sharpening, basic cuts, wood choices, carving tool purchases, and much more.
Enrollment is limited - and the class is already half full, so if you're interested, check out this link for more information.
