When did you start carving
What inspired you to start carving? Did you have a mentor?
My son attended the Thursday Whittle a While, and needed a ride, after a bit, the guys convinced me to try it.
Do you have a preferred technique? Are you a power carver (lathe, dremel), a hand carver (knives and gouges)?
I prefer hand over power, but will use whatever tool will get me the result I want.
Can you share pictures of some of your carvings?

Have you passed your passion for carving on to anyone else? Have you taken a student?
I have helped the kids of a few friends get started, and have worked with a couple of Scout troops on their carving badges, though we worked in soap instead of wood. I have also demoed at club meetings.
