It's saturday night and instead of working I am here on TC.
After reading most of the old carving threads I noticed that there are always Questions being asked by all of us.
So I started to google search and look for woodcarving sites . Here are a few of the many I found.
Most of these are directory's to other Sites.

If you have a good site or info please add it, or pm me and I can add it the this post.

http://www.carvingpatterns.com/wood.htm massive page

slipstones wood carving manuals Benzart passed this to me.

http://www.kaw-liga.com/related_sites.htm chainsaw carving links

one more that Aaron passed on to me , lots of bears and stuff but there is some tiki found in the search. Good info for chainsaw methods here

How could I not include this thread by BK.

Thanks for the information. Many of the sites I had to add to my favorites. The ones suggested by Ben look great.
