John's Gallery

This section shows some of my carvings. They are shown as a slide show. If you want information on the techniques, feel free to ask.  All of the techniques are things others have taught me and I'll be happy to pass that information on.


The Finishing section discusses techniques with oils, acrylics, and antiquing solutions. A lot of the processes and steps are similar, but there are some critical differences.  Don't ruin a good carving with a poor finishing job.


Check out the Pattern section.  
There are some interesting ideas from Doane, as well as classic Santa's 
and other creatures of fantasy.
