Effective October 1, 2020, my Vimeo video account will end. Unfortunately, this will result in the loss of a large number of downloaded videos that we have posted there over the years. Should you wish to download a favorite video(s) it should be done before the above date. After the above date some videos will remain but I will have no control which ones. All future project videos will be posted on my Youtube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/user/lodoughty
My woodcarving Blog: http://outwestwoodcarving.blogspot.com/ will remain active so the information, minus the videos, will remain.
Future Blog posts and videos of upcoming projects will be posted on the new, updated Out West Gallery website at: https://outwestgallery.com/ Just click on the "Blog" page and subscribe.
We hope you will continue to follow us for upcoming woodcarving posts, video projects, and maybe even a few adventures.
Thanks! Lynn & Judy Doughty

Hope you like him. Comments welcome as always.
In a previous video I made the comment that if at all possible you should never lay your carving tools aside for a long period or you might pay for it once the desire to carve something returns. This fella was a clear case of that. It seemed like he just did not want to exit from that block of Heineke wood! So, if you're kicked back in that recliner while your knives are growing cold and dull, get up and strop them back in shape. There's a figure out there waiting to be brought to life.
Comments welcomed as always.
I hope you like him and look forward to any comments you might have.
As an added note....as the Vimeo video hosting service seems to be losing access to a number of my older videos, I've decided to post any future videos directly to Youtube with the hope they'll remain there without any future problems.
I hope you enjoy the new series and will look forward to any comments as I always do.

The other day I received an email from a friend out in California inquiring about several of my carvings he found in a Flea Market. I think these were also carved back around 1998. That was back in my "Closed Eyes" period! Considering they're at least 20 years old they've really held up nicely...not a speck of dust that I can see and the colors are still bright and clean. A great reminder of how Boiled Linseed Oil should NEVER be used as a finish. Gawd only knows the shape they'd be in had I done that. I won't tell you what he paid for them other than that he got a REALLY GOOD deal. Did I say a REALLY GOOD deal? You betcha!
I'm pretty sure I remember who originally bought them as he also bought the scene in my last post here. He was a fairly old fella back then and a couple years ago he contacted me to see if I wanted to buy his collection back. Well, as Charlie Russell once said when asked how he felt about seeing his paintings and sculpture go, "I raised my children to leave home!" I told him I really wasn't interested in seeing mine come home again. One thing for certain though, from the way they look I raised them right! While it's a little sad to see a collection of my work busted up it's nice to see they went to someone who I know will appreciate them as much as the original owner. Knowing what a REALLY GOOD deal he got he probably appreciates them a lot more!! One thing to note is that old fella had a great collection of my work other than the ones here so keep your eye out you too might get one of those REALLY GOOD deals!
Comments always welcome.
