This is the absolute latest I’ve ever, in 30+ years, started carving ornaments! I’ve got a lot to do😁
I think some might be shorted who usually get one.

A mirror image (flipping text) is needed when applying a pattern using the Pattern Transfer Tool. In this video I show you how to do this using Open Office (free software) and Microsoft Word. It’s really quite easy.
An earlier video shows how to use Fontworks (Open Office tool) to create curved text to fit perfectly on the rim of a plate.
Both videos are Platinum Member videos and are also available for individual purchase.
Your feedback is always appreciated.

Dec. 9, 2016 There have been some ongoing production issues with the Platinum Modified Knives. If you happen to receive a Platinum Modified Knife that does not perform well, edge does not stay sharp, or has a poor blade grind, please contact us so we can correct this problem until you are 100% satisfied. We are offering this $20 store coupon for any inconvenience you may experience.
If you purchased a Platinum Modified Knife, individually or in a Platinum Edition 3-Knife Set, since last March, please email or call us so we can activate your $20 coupon code.
This has been very frustrating for us and we are currently looking for a new knife manufacturer who can meet the quality control we require for these top of the line knives. Thank you for your loyalty and understanding as we work to get past this problem.
Recently I was asked about the availability of a basswood serving tray. I’ve made them in the past and knew that they were time consuming to make. So instead of basswood I suggested EZboard as the perfect material. It is water resistant so spills and clean up will be a snap!
Look for a pattern and sample carving coming soon at EZcarving.com. Sign up for the ezcarving Blog if projects like this interest you.
More info on the Serving Tray can be found HERE.
