Spirit Williams: How To Carve A Flower Into Bass Wood

This is a flat bass wood carving tutorial aimed to guide your through the processes of wood carving at an intermediate and beginner. With excellent presentational skills Williams talks you through the fundamentals like the importance of clamping you wood block down with two ‘g’ clamps and to always work away from yourself to avoid injury.

She tells of how much easier it is to work with your carving at waist height to escape back pain both short and long term. She uses a veiner tool to carve away certain areas of the background to relieve and help protrude the foreground. The use of a hammer and chisel is needed around the outside of the design line and the process of ‘moving wood’ with the veiner is continued. She also touches upon some properties of wood in that there is more resitance when working across the grain rather than down it with the natural capillaries. Agreat little video tutorial to familiarize you with carving.

    1. I bought the tools a year ago, never picked them up since because I have Arthritis and Osteoporosis in the Vertebrae, but after watching this I might just get myself motivated. Thanks for letting the world see the beauty of wood carving. We and of course yourselves in the States, have 18th Century homes that have fantastic carvings all over, Staircases and wall carvings, that is where I original got the urge to pick up some tools.

    2. I’m so pleased that Spirit’s videos are so inspirational! We’ve been talking about doing a followup. Any suggestions? Spirit’s clips are the most popular that I’ve shot. I’d like to shoot another video that creates such interest.Best,Chris

    3. Mrs. Williams – Thank you very much for the great tutorial. I am a 37 year old man that has been working as a finish Carpenter for 20 years now. During this time I have never felt “in touch” with any of my projects. I decided to give carving a shot and I found your video here. I believe I have found a great headstart within your directions and I’m looking forward to a new, life long, hobby. Thanks again and enjoy all of your future projects.
