Hello From Canada

Hello from Canada

My name is Gerry kiernan, from Powell River, British Columbia, and I look forward to hearing from any fellow woodworkers on this site. I have no real specialty, as I am pretty much a generalist, but I am interested in cabinetry, carving, and pretty much anything that you can do with wood to make something interesting, usefull, or beautiful.

Regards to all

Gerry

Hello Gerry,

Sometimes I try and catch up on my "welcomes" and this is one of those times. Welcome!

How about posting some pics of your carvings. Something i don't have the patience or talent for so I like to look.

Hello from Canada

Hi Guys

Thanks for the welcome.

I have so far done one carving, a spirit face about 41/2 feet high by about 11/2 feet wide which I carved from a west coast red cedar slab found along the dike in Richmond. It was a combination of chainsaw and other methods to carve.

I followed the instructions in one of my woodcarving magazines, and was quite pleased with the first effort.

I have some other found slabs, which I will do when I get myself settled in.
When I get some more pieces I will take some pics and post them on the site.

Right now I am workng on getting settled in our new home [as of March first], and am working on building some bookcases from hemlock, which my brother gave me.

Thanks again.

Gerry
