This week we released the January 2022 episode of The Highland Woodworker, this time featuring woodcarver Randy Walters! We get to see some of Randy’s incredible relief carvings, and he even demonstrates some of his techniques.

If you have been looking for something new to watch, sit back and enjoy another great episode!
