Wood Carving, Wood Sculpture
Sam Clow creates
painted wood carvings of birds. He is shown
creating a bird from scratch by studying pictures,
making a pattern, then using a band saw to cut
the rough shape. He uses small handheld grinders
to carve the feathers, other features, and to
add texture. Once the carving is completed,
he uses acrylic paints to complete the birds.
uses wood to create all kinds of art objects.
He demonstrates the steps in making an outdoor
wooden weather vane. He starts with sketches
and then makes full-size plans. The wood pieces
are cut out, glued together, textured using
wood gouges, and painted.
