Since I joined the St. Petersburg Woodcrafters Guild, I have seen some incredible carvings up close and personal. Add to that seeing the impressive work of Kari Hultman and others and – boy – all I want to do now is carve. But, where on Earth to begin?
That’s why I’m happy this how-to page was created by the folks at Chipping Away. It gives a great primer on different types of carving styles (from delicate chip carving to carving in the round), an interesting perspective on how old someone should be before taking up the craft and links to tools to accomplish the different styles of carving.
It’s an interesting place to begin if you are interested in doing some carving on your own.
