Event description

Description

Learn basic power carving skills while carving a beautiful, functional jointed plug in this one-day class. Starting with a basswood blank and an acrylic piece for the diving plate, Cam will expertly guide you through all of the steps to carve, sand, assemble, paint and seal your own custom lure. There will be several different patterns to choose from, including the one shown above. You’ll learn how to use rotary tools to shape and sand the lure as well as how to make rigging from stainless steel wire and put it all together in a lure that’s beautiful in and out of the water. This is a great class for carvers of all skill levels. More experienced carvers may opt to work on a second lure in class (additional blanks extra).

Cam Merkle is the owner and president of Razertip Industries Inc. and Saskatchewan's only Wildfowl Master Artist. He has been teaching bird carving since 1984 and has been a teacher, judge and competitor with his carvings at shows and carving events all over North America. An avid bird observer and photographer, Cam has over 40 photo reference books and 2 pattern and photo books currently in print with more in the works. He’s also built 3 beautiful wooden kayaks and loves fishing from his Chesapeake 18 kayak. A word of warning if you’re thinking of taking a class from him - his passion for carving can be contagious.
