Just wanted to introduce myself, I’m Jim Benjamin from Colorado Springs, Colorado. I’m just beginning my adventures in the fascinating world of chip carving. I had tried to take a course here in Colorado at the Creede Woodcarver’s Rendezvous a few years ago but the instructor wasn’t into teaching beginners. I recently started a very basic course with Marty and in just a few hours I learned more from him then I did in three days with the instructor at Creede. I have signed up for the platinum membership and am going to get started in the next couple of days.
