Carving Fine Canes (multiple types of wood to select from)

Larry Wolterstorff, from Prescott, AZ is back to the 2023 TWG Spring Round-up! He will be teaching five 1-day Seminars (Monday through Friday) on how to carve a fine finished cane that you or someone you love will prize for years to come. Larry recommends 2 To 5 Days, depending on your carving skills. However, all level of carvers is welcome, beginners to advanced. Larry has spent years perfecting his techniques on carving & assembling canes. He will assist students in selecting a stick, a pattern, tip & handle for their cane. He will then teach students how to carve it, assemble it, & apply the finish on it. He uses a variety of different types of wood such as basswood, black walnut (from Oregon), Poplar, Figured Maple, some Burls, & Cherry. In some cases, he uses some exotic woods, such as Zebra, Wenge, Spalted Tamarind, Mable & Granadillo. Some of these woods are hard to obtain, so Larry suggests you contact him on (928) 445-8794 as soon as you sign up for his Seminar(s) & let him know what you want, so he can attempt to have it on hand for you.
