This decorative painting is in the stairway of a 150 year old farm house I renovated.

Commissioning wood carving gouges

When I buy a carving gouge I commission it by sanding all the varnish and hard edges off the handle and coat it with linseed oil so that it is smooth and comfortable in my hand. Then I regrind the bevel and hone the edge razor sharp. The bottom gouge is brand new. In the middle is a new gouge that has been commissioned. The handle of the top gouge has acquired a dark patina from use.

Cool art work.
Introduction
I'm David Neilson, and I'm primarily a sculptor. I do wood carving, cast and welded metal sculpture, and cement sculpture. I also make stained glass windows, jewelry, and do decorative painting. My studio is in the country between Austin and Houston.

I hope you enjoy my page and my artwork. Everyone is free to copy my work and make derivatives from it for any reason they choose.


People copy stuff they like. They don’t copy stuff they don’t like. The more a work is copied, the more valuable it becomes. Value isn’t taken away by fans, it is added by them, every time they copy. http://copyheart.org/
