I’m a self taught award winning wood carver who has been carving since I was a teenager. I enjoy instructing other carvers, especially beginners.

  1. Well, Bob, Let’s keep the strop conversation going. I’d be interested in knowing what tips and techniques folks have for stropping gouges and other non-knife blades. Also any good thoughts on the idea of power stropping versus manual.


  2. Hey Bob, Rick here I’m new to the chanel. I’ve enjoyed reading what I have missed. Just for the record I am all but cyber illiterate. I was one of the old farts that thought computers would never go anywhere . Please keep the information flowing!
