Minnesota Metro Wood Carvers
Wood Carvers of MN
Joining a wood carving club can help you improve your carving skills. Wood carving is a relaxing and peaceful process that can have a great impact on your body, mind, and spirit. It demands thoroughness, focus, patience, and vision.
Wood carving can be a very profitable career. You could start your own business, selling custom-made pieces, or become an instructor and teach others how to carve.
Wood carving has a fairly steep learning curve.
Some of the things you need to learn include:
Holding the tools correctly
Learn to sharpen your tools properly
Cutting at the correct angle
Judging how much wood to remove with each cut
Choosing the best tool for each cut
Wood carving is not an expensive hobby. You can start for free with tools you already have. You can buy all the high-quality beginner tools you'll need for less than the cost of a single video game.
You have no idea of the enjoyment of wood carving plus the camaraderie of all the members
and the help they share . Join us today and find out for yourself the joy it can bring you.
