Hey gang. The class is now half full and we are coming into the home stretch.
I consider myself a beginner as a carver. I have started one carving and struggled with it. That's the inspiration for Coon Tiki. Last year, in that one weekend, I learned a tremendous amount. I know I will learn more this time too.
The piece for the class is an opportunity for Ben to show us a lot of things. Whether you are new to carving or an old hand, this class should help you along. I know Ben is eager to spend lots of time helping everyone and guiding us along.
You just can't beat, one on one, in person learning. Anything you have wondered about in your work, you can be sure Ben has a good answer and can show you how.
Basement Kahuna has a wealth of knowledge as well. History and techniques for finishes along with incredible carving skills.
I'm looking forward to another weekend carving and learning and getting to know people.
