I often encounter carvers who know want they want to carve but don’t quite get round to it. Having written that comment, I don’t mean that people cite running out of time, which we all know is the main reason people don’t get round to doing something, but instead, the original comment pertains to people saying they are not sure how to start or do some aspect of what they wish to make.

I often hear about what carvers are making and doing. Most say they are not doing as much as they would like, but admit to not focusing on one thing at a time and having many projects on the go at various stages of completion.

Most carvers admit to also pursuing other crafts and hobbies, such as bird-watching, calligraphy, drawing, pottery, photography and so on and some also venture into other woodworking disciplines like cabinetry, marquetry and turning. It is the turning that I am going to pick up on here.
