It feels good being back home after spending a few days in Seattle and taking a 5 day engraving class at The Ranch. Center for Arts & Craft in Snohomish. The class was taught by master engraver Ray Cover. It was a great experience and I feel learned a lot. The class encompassed many tips on proper tool use, graver sharpening, design transfer, cutting techniques and of course lots of practice of different engraving styles.
