Here at Screamin’ Designs, we offer up a wide variety of beautiful wood carved items. If you are impressed by our designs and want to know a little bit more about woodworking in general, then you should check out some of the best woodworking tips that both beginners and professionals use for their wood carving projects.
The following are some of the best woodworking tips that you can use:
- Use a reusable sanding block – Cut out blocks of scrap plywood around 2 ½ inches by 4 ¾ inches in size. Get some cork tiles and spray adhesive to each side. Stick the cork to the block of plywood and then attach sandpaper using adhesive. Voila! This will make sanding down wood much easier.
- Avoid glue stains – In order to prevent glue stains at the joints of your wood projects, clamp together your wood pieces. Place tape over the joints, then cut them apart with a sharp blade. Separate the pieces, then add the glue and clamp them back together. Any glue that oozes out will go onto the tape instead of the wood, which you can then simply pull off.
- Use a drafting square for better accuracy – If you need to make an accurate square that’s within the two to three foot range, use a drafting square. Drafting squares are more accurate than drywall squares and more convenient than carpenter squares.
These are a some of the best woodworking tips that will make life a lot easier if you are working on a woodworking project.

If you aren’t aware of the rich history of woodcarving, then you’ll find it interesting that woodcarving is one of the oldest types of art there is. In fact – artists have been using wood since the Stone Age to carve beautiful pieces of art. The reasoning behind this is simple – wood has always been easily available.
Although wood is more vulnerable than other materials – it absorbs water and is vulnerable to airborne fungi and insects, making it degrade faster than other materials – its use can be traced all over the world.
Woodcarving was used in Oceanic art for ceremonial canoes, as well as by American Indians for totem poles. Woodcarving was quite popular later in Europe as well, especially in Medieval, Gothic, and Romanesque architecture – such as in churches and cathedrals. Woodcarving has continued to be popular even in the twentieth century, such as its use in folk art. Original artists used chisels to build their canoes and totem poles.
These are just a couple of examples of early woodcarving art forms. Be sure to contact us at Screamin’ Designs for information about our novelty items. We donate 10 percent of our after-tax profits to the Hope for the Warriors organization.
