Magic Woodcarver
Naestved, Denmark
I use creative geometry to bring new life to old traditions of "magic woodcarving", i.e. the art of carving a piece of wood into parts that are loose, but cannot be separated. Traditional examples are wooden chains and balls in cages, as seen in such items as Welsh love spoons and European wool winders. My book "Woodcarving Magic" is now available from Fox Chapel Publishing Company. It explains my carving technique as well as the geometric methods I use to develop new models.
