Like most “Creatives”, Jeremy Harmon’s talents spill over into many different mediums and utilize various tools to see their visions come to life. In 2014, he added a CarveWright to his tool set.

The 2018 CarveWright Conference: Back to Basics Boot Camp wrapped up Saturday evening with the customary library tours and revelry at the BBQ.

Customer Spotlight – Sharon Berrum Written by: Connie Ratisseau Sharon Berrum first spotted a CarveWright (actually, a CompuCarve) at a Sears store near her Central Oregon home in 2007.  As an avid dollmaker, her first thought was that it would keep her husband occupied, so that she could dedicate more time to her sewing. Once they […]

A couple of years ago, I was asked to work on another project with sculptor Bridgette Mongeon.  You may recall the Best Of Big Taste Trophy I did with her back in May of 2015.  Bridgette is a really interesting artist.  She marries 3D technology with her more traditional hand skills into a very streamlined workflow.

My daughter is a princess. I suspect most fathers feel this way about their daughters, but my daughter is especially a princess, because she is mine. See how that works?  There is a magical moment in a father-daughter relationship, where she asks you to make her something.  What joy!  Being a princess, she wanted to decorate […]

A quick project came up awhile back that I thought was a pretty cool use of my CarveWright.  I play bass guitar with a band and we were discussing ordering a graphic printed bass drum head for this festival we were playing.  We kind of dragged our feet and then there wasn’t enough time to order it.
