Additional Activity
In The World Community Of Carvers ~  I am owner, administrator and moderator of The Carving Path Forum on the internet  It was created by Don Fogg, Jim Kelso and myself when we saw a need for a place for artists, who carve in a smaller scale, to meet to ask and answer questions about what things we do.  Also, my netsuke and small sculpture web site caught the interest of many carvers, world wide, who sought information about carving tools, materials, techniques, others to share experiences with, discuss philosophy and more.    It is hoped that the forum will welcome carvers from around the world, whose work of many diverse disciplines involves small scale carving, while providing a friendly, informative and accessible place for communication and learning.  The forum’s web address:  www.thecarvingpath.net/forum
