    Hi. Has anyone ever hand carved a wood burl (burr) bowl? I have recently started on a walnut one..first time, had an injury in the woods and some decay, to my surprise, I found a lead 22 bullet in working on it in my spare time. Thanks

  • Perry A. Reynolds (Friday, March 14 14 09:57 am EDT)

    Nice Wood Carving Group… A carving group is an excellent avenue for wood carvers of all skill level to share. I wish there was one close to me for my students to join. I have told them to form one
    but I don't think they have anyone willing to commit the time… Good Job Everyone!

    First year retired and I have a small bag of projects started over the years, unfinished. One is a houndog and a couple more angles on the one featured in your member projects would be helpful! I've
    bookmarked your page -- so glad to see a resource I don't have to travel to access.
