arbortech carvers

Hello :brans new to the site, hope to hear from others interested in carving with the arbortech, been carving mostly with a curved adz or coopers adz and hatchets, and scorps for about 25 years and now discovered the arbortech blades and am really impressed with the versatility of what these tools can do especially when carving green freshly cut timber, have roughed out a 5" thick slice of elm which the photo should show... hope to hear from somebody, thanks nuby

Hi Nuby,
Welcome to the forum. I don't carve, but I am sure there are some here that do. Enjoy yourself,
Mike Hawkins

heavy snow cleveland?

HELLO mIKE : THANKS FOR THE REPLY, GUESS YOU GUYS ARE GETTING SOME SNOW, i SEE, I ORIGINALLY COME FROM NEAR pHILLY AND MARRIED A bRITISH GIRL WHO ALWAYS WANTED TO MOVE BACK HERE TO THE u.k., SO RIGHT NOW WE ARE IN nORTH dEVON, A NICE RURAL AREA, SOME 150 MILES AWAY FROM lONDON. dISCOVERED THE Arbortech through a mutual woodworker, ther are lots of turners around me, but I have never had the space for the lathe, which is probably good because I don't think I would ever want to stop turning, looks like a very creative way of working wood, ther are guys around here who still use the tredle lathe, and can make quite a few interesting things, but they cannot get the torque for bowls ... cheers charlie, aka nuby

Nuby,
This is what it looks like now, and still snowing. Heading for single digit temperatures (F) tonight.
