I'm looking for suggestions for wood carving hand tools for somebody
just getting started. I've poked around online and the price ranges vary
greatly. I'd like to give carving a serious shot, but I'm not sure I'm
ready to dump $200-$300 on gouges. I'm looking for something mid-range,
and some suggestions on what sort of sizes I should be picking up.
Go to your local library, borrow a book or wo on carving. Than,
like you've already been advised, and if you don't already have one, go
to your local hardware stre and pick up a decent pocket knife. Might
want to pick up a sarpening stone too. Then ge som chunks of 2X4 or
similar wod. No prob.
Custom philosophizing done. No job too small; must be indoor work, with
no heavy lifting.
