in my search ,,,,,,chipchats some things don't change

some time ago , at one of our woodcarvers meeting , one of the members brought in a magazine that i had thought was long gone, and it was still going called chipchats, some of you may remember it,, i been carving for 30 years and found it to be full of pictures from shows around the country .. i found some of my old issues from years past , and took the time to scan a few of them, things havent changed to much about the art of woodcarving but what has change is now we use power, and a new media called the internet,
i was lucky to find a book on the subject , let alone the basswood, lol
my my things have move forward, but yet its an old art or craft, its one that can be done as it was done so many years ago, with a block of wood and a knife, yes the bandsaw helps, for the bulk of wood removal, but many projects can be done with just a block of wood,
here is the link to chip chats,http://www.chipchats.org/ if your interested in checking it out,, no doubt you will find some helpful and useful information, happy carving, arleen
