Hi and Welcome!
Susan Alexander Carves is a blog written for beginner and intermediate carvers. This is where I’ll share what I’m discovering in the carving world including carving tips from experienced and Master Carvers both in the U.S. and internationally, carving and tool recommendations, event lists, and excellent resources – everything that will expand your love of carving.
You’ll also find some of my best tips and articles straight from my Let’s Talk Carving column published in Carving Magazine. I’ll be posting new carving tips and video blogs documenting my ongoing carving education, as well as the mistakes I’ve made and what I’ve learned from making them. I’m the same as you: loving to carve and learning something new and exciting every day. To find out a little more about me, click on the About Susan page.
