Hi there

Hello you guys,

I am a metal sculptor but I want to incorporate some nature into my pieces. Wood is one of the material that I want to incorporate but I do not know anything about it, so I registered here in order to get some help. I hope you guys do not bother to answer questions to an outsider

Or if someone like myself being as green as a wood lover only we can still hit the common ground - welcome.

Thank you guys for welcoming me into the forum ...Deryl you can check pictures of my work at my website www.alfredoalamo.com. It has been a while since I updated it, but I have not done too much either.

Not at all, and you are no longer an outsider you are one of us. I went to your site, I am a fan of the unusual...which makes me a fan of yours I guess (that was a compliment, please take it that way)

Welcome to the forum Amalgam.
Very intriguing work. I think you'll find working with wood very different from working in metal, but comes with its own challenges and rewards. We'll help all we can.
