The club maintains a a wonderful library of books for carvers. Books are available at our meeting place on Folsom Blvd. and at Shirley’s shop. These books demonstrate a wide array of carving topics such as caricature carving, chip carving, relief carving, bird and wildlife carving techniques and photos. Videos are also available.
Our members are also an outstanding resource. Many of them have decades of carving experience, and generously offer guidance for all new members. They can instruct new members on carving safety, carving techniques, sharpening techniques, and they can recommend what types of tools you should have, to fit your needs.
There are also tools and safety gloves available for loan at both places, so that you can come and try out some carving before committing yourself.
Our club also has a large variety of quality used tools available to buy at discount prices. Please let us know if you are interested in purchasing some of our used tools.
