I am the Spaniard that bought the carving knife.
Where should I begin to learn carving skills?

Self bump.
I know carve-hungarian is here.

I'm here. I should have specified that I chiefly available in the evenings and a little in the early mornings.
This is a slow board, so whatever you post it's sure I'll read it.

Bernd 09/24/2019 (Tue) 15:46:45 [Preview] No.29333 del
So carving with a knife is called whittling. Real carving is done more with chisels and gauges than knives.
Where to begin? I saw it on Kohl, you started ambitiously with a figurine. You can learn a lot with that but I also see you actually carving since I see chisels there.
Whittling is a slow process and needs lots of patience. It's removing little material with little force. I think first I would try different cuts, shallow, deep, in different angles, on different materials, different type of woods. Would try to remove a lot with one cut, and a little with one.
Maybe I would make a proper stake/tent peg. That needs a few types of cuts, very simple and can be made from all kinds of woods. I dunno what's available to you. Try it on softer one, pines, hazels, then harder ones, ash, oak, fruit trees. And you will see all differs, and you will know what you want to practice on.
But your approach was ok, you'll learn if you whittle/carve, no matter what.

Bernd 09/24/2019 (Tue) 16:45:07 [Preview] No.29334 del
Buy some European lime, a small saw and a small wood planer. Then again just fucking carve stuff.

I carved two knife from ash using a Stanley blade.

There's a carving Spaniard? Didn't know. Bout 2015-16 on KC main a Russian dude posted a carving. He used a board and made a landscape with a house and curving road. Was pretty dope.

Bernd 09/24/2019 (Tue) 17:03:11 [Preview] No.29339 del
So then, get a stick, and make it pointy. Get another stick (a different wood) and make that pointy too.
When I was a kid in school we used pencils a lot and I always sharpened them with a knife. Was a good experience to see how the differing quality woods got whittled.

Here's some tent pegs, freshly dl'd from the nets, will be good for template. With making such you can practice cutting perpendicularly to the grain and in an angle.
The grain runs more or less straight in the wood (up and down) but at certain places (like where's a know) it can warp. You'll see how the wood behaves differently.
You can leave a stake/peg round at first (if you make it from a stick), but trying to make it rectangular is also a good practice.
Don't whittle large portions, only little. As I said, it's removing little material with little force.

Also get iodine, sterile gauze and adhesive for your wounds as you'll cut yourself a lot in the future.

I like those, I yet to try ash, looks nice material.

I post this here too. It has explanations, angles, measurements.
Try stick is good, because one will use the same cuts when whittling something more complex, like a figurine.

Breddy gud, make it pointy.
Then we'll kill vampires.
And then, if you make two V notch instead of the 90 degree and make the point of the stick more elongated then you'll get something like this: >>29335

Should I try to make an ebin whistle?

Bernd 09/26/2019 (Thu) 05:56:27 [Preview] No.29383 del
Can be done.
But drilling holes with knives aren't that easy.
Peeps sometimes split a stick, carve channel for the air going then glue the stuff together, or tie it tight.

I have to bounce tho right now, can continue in the evening.

Bernd 09/26/2019 (Thu) 06:40:12 [Preview] No.29386 del
Looks very good
Are you going to sand it? If so, sand it in stages and wet the thing between stages.

Ash is very hard, I got a bruised palm whittling those but the wood is lovely, very pale and not too heavy. Its also slightly flexible. Ash die back is causing lots of problems here so I keep finding felled trees with untouched branches. Soon Ash will be a rare wood.

#1 - All this talk about whittling set my mood, so today I'm gonna maek sumtin. Wasn't sure what exactly, a round stick just screams for a chess piece.
#2 - Debark the stick.
#3 - That knot will be a broblem.
#4 - That bend too. That will limit the size.

#5 - A ring where it can be sawed when it's ready. There will be the base.
#6 - Shaping the base, kinda round. It will be much more slim and slender, but I leave about this size for now so I won't break the thing down accidentally.
#7 - A couple of minutes after I decided this will be a horsie. A knight that is. I want one on the end of the try stick too. This will be the trial run.
#8 - At this point as I smeared some blood on the piece I realized I nicked the tip of my thumb. I had the choice to stop or continue with holding the stick awkwardly as I try not to bloody it more but this would hinder the process, and become a source of mistakes and maybe further wounds. No thanks.

Dunno when I will finish this, won't take long, one more session. However I found at least one designing flaws I made. But maybe it will be all right, just have to make the figurine smaller.

Oh I forgot. It's hazel.

Bernd 09/29/2019 (Sun) 06:24:38 [Preview] No.29415 del
dude I love it. Are you going to file in those grooves? Maybe a face? Nostrils and eyes?

Bernd 09/29/2019 (Sun) 06:45:11 [Preview] No.29416 del
But will cut as much details with the knife as I can. It's just I have to take a couple of days until my thumb heals enough. And even then, when I have the time, maybe next weekend. Or maybe I can steal a couple of minutes here and there, hazel is very easy to carve, it's a relatively quick job.

I was high time to continue this little knight. Well, did less then I planned but it's still progress.

It's getting look like a horse. But it got smaller and gonna gave problems with the details. The two most notable is the ears and eyes.
What really fucked me over is the center of the stick, it was just too soft and crumbly. It's not a coincidence that for real pieces they don't use sticks.

Also was in the woods today. Very nice weather, tho wasn't any exciting to photo. Maybe mushrooms, there were quite a few but many collector ranging around.

Now here's another project I might never finish. I have this Y branch from a poplar, dried maybe a year, I split it into halves. I want to make a stool and a table out of them, both three legged.
Needs to be flattened, planed, and I have some branches to fit into them as legs. Not sure about the holes for those, square probably and gonna use chisel, I don't have wide enough drill bits to make round holes, but maybe buy one, they ain't expensive. Also this pieces of log needs some sawing on their ends, they kinda started to rot sadly.
I forgot to place something beside them for size reference, their length about 55 cms.

Bernd 06/21/2020 (Sun) 19:29:07 [Preview] No.37999 del
Also they smelled wildly turpentine right after splitting. Still moderately.

Or two giant slings.

And use them for the Hungarian Space Program.
