Join our carving club! 

A new carving project will come to your door every other month. Each box includes a soft wood blank, instructions, wood butter, and sandpaper. Get exclusive access to Carve Along's with Melanie! During each Carve Along, Melanie will show you tips and tricks on how to make your piece perfect.

  • Learn new skills and carving techniques
  • Get access to exclusive workshops with Melanie

We have designed 6 different projects for the year! They include a footed bowl, animal figurine, and pocket mirror to name a few! This was an opportunity to make really fun and unique blanks that I wouldn't normally have on the site. We will let you know what tools we used to make each one and let you know what you need to create your finished piece!

We love treating our members! You’ll become part of our online community of dedicated carvers! Get member offers, new product sneak peeks, and invites to online and in-person events.
