Rough shaping and contouring techniques in green and dry wood using only hand tools. It's all about obeying the grain.
Timeless Tools: Taking Shape
Self taught, Tracey carves functional wooden art without the use of templates, guidelines or automated machinery. In addition to teaching powercarving and tool restoration, he has made many hundreds of one-of-a-kind spoons, bowls, tool handles, and custom pieces in the last handful of years. His innovative and ever-evolving workflow meshes hand and powercarving techniques allowing him to make unique, exquisite pieces with remarkable expediency. In his seminars, Tracey will primarily emphasize the hand tools and methods that remain indispensable to his unorthodox process.
