Dan, I’ve a few months experience so take my advice as a grain of salt. I’m just pretty much a beginner. I love the Pfiel tools and that’s what I always try to buy. I also like the Henry Taylor tools. Woodcraft should have a beginners 6 or 12 piece set if you can afford it. The beginner sets will usually have what you need to do a carving like that and you’ll save a few bucks per tool. You can always buy one or two more tools if you need to to get a more rounded set. If you are going to put your first carving into a piece of furniture I would encourage you to do the carving several times before you carve the one that is going into the piece because you will improve each time and the experience will be good for you. You can do it – just jump in and keep your tools sharp..
