Welcome back! Today was the day, I started my new adventure in wood carving with a community education course. You can never be too sure what to expect with community ed courses, the teachers tend to be volunteers or are generally just getting a cut of whatever you’re paying for the course.

While he did speak about tools, types of wood, and types of carving he wanted to talk primarily about motivation through personal stories. He enjoys spreading happiness through wood carving,
