Saturday, March 12, 2016
Presented by: Bill Doughty

Meeting Agenda

Meeting Date: March 12, 2016

Meeting Start Time: 10:00 AM

Bill Doughty will show the members how to carve a letter and a number. Bill will use primarily 3 tools: a “V” parting tool, a 1/2″ no. Gouge. and a 1/2″ straight or skewed chisel.

Members are reminded that this hands on program necessitates that you provide your own carving tools. You will need:

  1. A 1/2 inch or equivalent 12mm straight or skewed chisel/gouge
  2. A 1/2 inch or equivalent 12mm, no 3 chisel/gouge
  3. A “V” Groove or Parting tool. The “V” Groove / Parting tool might be of a 45 or 60 degree and possibly 6mm or more.

These are the minimum of tools, you are welcome to bring a complete set if you please.

We are trying to source tools but please research on your own. By browsing the internet it looks like sets of carving tools is the most economic way to buy.
