I've been asked several times to do something, anything, on letter carving. I have always been very hesitant because of the quality of my camera. It is tough to get a camera, specially mine, to take close video with good quality.
Though this video is still not the best in visual quality, hopefully it will get some wheels turning for people interested in letter carving.
Letting carving is a HUGE topic and takes time and practice to get good at. I think anyone can learn to carve, even if they learn from books and videos. Once you put chisel to wood everything starts to make sense.
I plan on writing more blog posts on Letter Carving, Layout, Letter Weight, Letter Spacing, Painting Letters, and anything else I can think of. Please look for those future blog posts under the categories column to the right, under Letter Carving. This blog post is the first one, so don't be surprised if you can't find anything else under that topic right now.
I hope you enjoy the video, and if you have any questions for me or would like to see other topics discussed on the show please let me know. You can contact me through my email, facebook, this blog, or YouTube. All links can be found at the top of the page.
