Besides black smithing, I also love woodworking. I mainly carve but I do other stuff once in a while. I go to a school in Wayne NJ called the American Woodcarving School. I go every Saturday for 3.5 hours in the afternoon. This horse I have been working in since February. It is made of basswood and the brown coloring is not paint. It is woodburning that puts the hair texture which is very fine. It is going to be painted Rome color which is reddish brown and will have a White on top of the snout. The eyes are going to be dark brown and have epoxy on them which will make them look like glass. The base is going to be black and look a bit like rocks. I will post a picture when it is finished. Funny thing is that I started carving it before I knew or was interested in farriers. Let me know what you think!
