Does anyone have any recommendations for contemporary daiza carvers? By contemporary, I mean the non-traditional daiza like those found in China with the more extravagant shapes and designs. There is a section on the VSANA website for reference: https://www.vsana.org/contemporary-gallery
Thanks for the link. Nice works. I’m starting to work some wood myself and hadn’t thought about alternative daiza shapes. Maybe in my future.

I burned up several dremel tools before finally getting one of these. Incredible difference in control, power, everything.


Worth every penny.

Harbor freight angle grinder with flap sanding discs, a Bosch regular router and a skill saw do everything else I've needed.

Have you talked to Jerry Braswell? Or Sean Smith? Danny Hart @Hartinez is building some avant-garde stands. Maybe he could do one.

Standard burrs work on steel, so wood is no big deal. Many other end shapes are available.

Jerry has had some health issues and I've been waiting ten months for a stand. I don't want to pressure him.

I know Sean specializes in more traditional work but I will reach out.

I wasn't aware of Danny's work, but I will check it out.

Thanks!

Hey Lars. I’m curious about your plans? Let me know if I can help. I’ve posted all the stands I’ve made on here and I have all of my other types of work on my website and Instagram as @dannyhartdesignstudio

Jumping in here, I just checked out Instagram @dannyhartdesignstudio and wow! Danny, you have a great skill and craftsmanship shows. It's not often I'm blown away by wood working but this did it. Thanks for letting us out here see your work. BTW the little black table is so so cool.
