I can answer almost all questions regarding woodcarving, chip carving, scroll sawing, carving tools and techniques and can answer most questions regarding wood. I am not an appraiser of carvings nor an antique dealer.


I am a Business man and own a small company of Dewalt Nail Gun. So, I think I can help people about this as well as take help from other experts. I hope my journey in will be very essential for me and my viewer. Thanks,
