I purchased my knots from the tree wiz and I have to say these are wonderful looking pieces. If you get a chance check out either Gary Burns aka the tree wiz or TJ Kleens for two of the best pine knot carvers. Each has their own style and unique look in carving these and both have a wonderful way of making the wood come alive.
When my box of knots arrived I could see why they both love carving these chunks of wood, so now a new chapter begins for me but one thing, I have no intention of moving away from carving with my knives and gouges as I still have a way to go before I feel like I have mastered that style of carving. Hopefully this will give me a new perspective and may even have me approach carving with a knife in a new direction. I will post more as this journey begins and will also be posting some new carvings hopefully in the not so distant future.
On a side note, we made some changes in our living room so this has temporarily impacted my work space. Hopefully I will have things reorganized and functioning shortly, until then as always or at least until tbt,
