“The Master Carver” – Mentor Discussion With Author Chris Lubkemann

Chris Lubkemann is a bestselling author of wood carving books which include “The Little Book of Whittling”, “Whittling Twigs and Branches”, and “Tree Craft: 35 Rustic Wood Projects that Bring the Outdoors In”.  He has been featured on the DIY network and countless articles. While on tour recently, I met up with Chris to learn about some of the techniques he teaches in his books. See, we have his book at my house and you’re just as likely to see “The Little Book of Whittling” sitting around the house as you would a lego, or guitar, or one of my son’s pocket knives. It’s a fixture. I had to track Chris down while on tour. He taught me some great techniques to teach my sons but as with most the guys I visit with, they have a deeper side that somehow we always tap into while visiting.

In this video, The Master Carver, Chris shares his insights that he has gleaned from years of carving and whittling.

Be sure and watch his other videos which include: How To Sharpen A Knife Pt. 1 and Pt. 2, and more to come soon.Chris Lubkemann
