On Instagram and YouTube I’m regularly asked what wood I’m carving because the chips are so smooth and beautiful. I just made some wine bottle holders from another creamy, white piece of 1-1/8″ thick northern US grown basswood (linden). I had to take a picture! There’s nothing like it!!😁👍😁👍
Here’s some more ideas on using a glove to improve your grip when carving
Thanks, Gary, for sharing this information with me so I can pass it on to everyone else!
How to improve your grip when carving
I hadn’t thought of this until the other day when I was working on making knife handles in my shop.
When I was at the auto parts store I picked up some work gloves to help me hold knife blades during the handle process. I thought the sticky glove surface would help improve my grip. And it sure did!
I picked up a completed knife with the gloves on and my grip was locked on the handle with little effort! Why hadn’t I thought of this before?
Do you have trouble gripping your knife? Maybe your hands aren’t as strong as they used to be. Consider giving these gloves a try!
This Grease Monkey brand meets my needs. I’ll guess Harbor Freight and others sell them as well. I paid $10 for 10 pair.
