Come learn the fundamentals of wood carving from a master artisan luthier and craftsman! In this 2-day workshop Ron offers instruction and demonstrations on various types of carving tools, carving styles, the best woods and materials for carving, finishing, and safety. After instruction and demonstrations on the properties and characteristics of different woods, students craft small projects using hand chisels and gouges to practice what they have learned. Completed small projects can be taken home.
Cabrillo's wood shop has a wide selection of hand tools including gouges and chisels with which to experiment. Students may also bring in their own tools and learn how to sharpen them.
Practice woods are included.
