Hello All Anyone have experience carving madrone? I plan to turn most of it. Will be carving with hand tools. Thanks, Ron A.

Ron, I have a piece of madrone waiting for me to carve. I am told it is a very hard wood but beautiful finished. Am waiting anxiously for someone who has carved it to tell us about it.

I suggest you keep the carving light; it is extremely hard.

If you are carving a harder wood with tools sharpened for soft woods like basswood you will find that they lose their edge very quickly. Keep the strop very close and don't be surpised if you need to re-hone your knife or tools when you get done.
