Jim Bartz does a good job...

Randall D from Indianapolis, IN Posted April 30, 2008
Jim Bartz does a good job of clearly showing and explaining his free hand technique for sign carving. I found it very helpful. It would have been nice to see many other project examples in more detail, but his main example is excellently presented. He does demo other examples, but not in as much detail as his main sign project. I give his DVD an excellent rating. Thanks Jim.

I was just getting into sign...

I was just getting into sign carving about a year ago and had no clue what-so-ever what I was doing. The basic techniques displayed in this video got me going and actually inspired me to attempt free-hand sign carving, which is so much more easier than you would think. The narrator of this instructional video, Jim Bartz, does a fine job demonstrating the process. I would highly recommend this DVD, especially if you have any hesitation to try sign carving. You will me impressed at just how simple it is. Have fun.

I enjoyed this video. The presentation...

I enjoyed this video. The presentation is no-frills, straight forward. Any questions I had after watching were answered by the faq on their website. Bought some 3/8" acrylic plates for router bases, but haven't gotten software to make the templates and attempt actually making one yet.
