WOOD CARVINGS FOR SALE. Wood carving has been around for many thousands of years yet few examples of these ancient pieces remain due to the effects of time. Over time weathering, fungus and insect attack eats away at the wood degrading any carving work or can completely destroy it. Wood carving, as an art form, includes any kind of sculpture in wood, from the decorative bas-relief on small objects to life-size figures in the round, furniture, and architectural decorations.

Wood carving has been around just about as long as man has been upon this earth. Due to wood being a material that will not withstand the test of time, wood carvings must be protected and taken care of if they are to endure. Unlike stone carvings or sculptures that might be buried for thousands of years, due to wars and conquests or for whatever the reason and survive, imagine what would happen to a woodcarving or woodsculpture under those conditions. Between the elements and the insects, in a short time nothing would be left.

The history of wood carving has from the remotest ages the decoration of wood as a foremost art. The North American Indian carves his wooden fish-hook or his pipe stem just as the Polynesian works patterns on his paddle. The native of Guyana decorates his cavassa grater with a well-conceived scheme of incised scrolls, while the native of Loango Bay distorts his spoon with a design of perhaps figures standing up in full relief carrying a hammock.

wood carving for beginners,

  • Learn how to handle a wood carving knife. Whether you’re using an x-acto knife from the garage, or you went out and purchased a fancy wood carving knife from the supply store, you need to know how to properly handle the tool before starting to dig into a piece of wood.
  • Cut along the grain. Before you start carving, you want to determine which direction the grain of the wood is running. You can do this by carving a piece of wood out of a corner, curving out to finish the cut so the wood doesn’t rip at the end. Take note of the long, dark streaks running through the wood.
  • Sketch out your wood cuts. Don’t rush your wood carvings. Any mistake you make is potentially permanent. You’ll have to change up your plan to integrate the mistake into the finished product, and that could sacrifice your original vision. To avoid this, it helps to lightly sketch out your cuts and carvings with a pencil. Draw out lines to cut along, and shapes to carve out. It will help you be more precise, and prevent un-fixable mistakes.

Wood carving tools for sale or carving tools for sale
We had been looking for a tool manufacturer for a long time that represents the quality of my inherited professional tools from long ago. They have the two most important qualites that define a great tool. The first is a good tool design; important in how the wood carving tool moves and controls through the wood. we always tell that a razor blade is the “definition of sharpness” but it is completely useless in wood carving. The second characteristic these tools deliver is a good sustaining keen edge that can make that perfect thin wood curl. Most tools on the market use an inferior tool steel to lower production costs; however, great tool steel is of absolute importance to create the best quality for a wood carving tool edge.

Types of wood carving tools

the carving knife: a specialized knife used to pare, cut, and smooth wood. The most basic wood carving tool. Chip carving knives consist of a blade that is about an inch and a half long, with a long handle designed for comfort, so it doesn’t hurt your hand.
the gouge : a tool with a curved cutting edge used in a variety of forms and sizes for carving hollows, rounds and sweeping curves. Gouges are curved carving tools that can scoop out large or small areas of wood, depending on how wide their sweep is. U-gouges, V-gouges, and spoon gouges… there are plenty of different types that can be used for carving, shaping, and smoothing surfaces.
the coping saw : a small saw that is used to cut off chunks of wood at once.
the chisel : large and small, whose straight cutting edge is used for lines and cleaning up flat surfaces. Chisels are sharp tools used with mallets for wood chipping techniques.
the V-tool : used for parting, and in certain classes of flat work for emphasizing lines.
the veiner : a specialized deep gouge with a U-shaped cutting edge.
sharpening equipment, such as various stones and a strop: necessary for maintaining edges.
A special screw for fixing work to the workbench, and a wood carving mallet, complete the carvers kit, though other tools, both specialized and adapted, are often used, such as a router for bringing grounds to a uniform level, bent gouges and bent chisels for cutting hollows too deep for the ordinary tool.
