Hi Hubbers-Many Thanks for reading my hubs. I appreciate your comments and suggestions for improvment.
I was excited to learn that my hub

Also Thankyou HubNuggets readers for voting me first for for my hub about learning wood carving:
"Carving Native Masks from Wood."
And second for my hub "The Skirt"
My name is Marsha Ablowitz.In the 1960's I studied creative writing at the University of B.C.and realised it wouldn't make me rich. However I learned the joy of telling a good story.
I'm a retired psychiatric social worker living in the rainbow city of Vancouver B.C. and travelling the world exploring new countries new mountains. I'm happy hiking, writing and wood carving mainly using my knives and gouges on red and yellow cedar to carve lots of chips.
My favorite topics:
adventure trips, short stories, wood carving,
I have posted chapters from my draft sci fi novel including:
Dal and Chandra, Last Life on Earth Dal meets Ran

Have you ever wondered what a totem pole is or how one is carved? Here are pictures and stories of how and why people start chopping away making totem poles. You can try it on your own, but be careful not to injure yourself.

Here is an introduction to carving West Coast native wooden masks, bowls and amulets. Also touches on other styles of carving. At first cutting wood is a bit scary if you don't know how to hold the knives and hold the tools. But lessons help.
