I am just getting started as a wood carver and still exploring where I will go with it. I have a few knives and chisels and adding some along the way as I learn what I need and where to get them
I am also trying to find the best source for wood. Since I am currently only doing chip carving, small sculptures and reliefs, my needs are not great. I am purchasing small blocks of basswood from Rockler and Woodcrafters locally.
Is there a better / cheaper source for my wood? I have been unable to find any butternut or eastern white Pine.
Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
