I have never attempted to do wood carving other than some chip carving but lately I have been fascinated by some of the work I have seen. I watched a guy in Savannah Georgia doing carving in front of a consignment arts shop and was captivated by his skill. My wife and I are looking for a motor home to travel the US and I was concerned I would not get to do any wood working which made me not want to do any traveling but now I think wood carving would be the ideal thing for me to do while on long trips. I have a set of about 25 – 30 carving chisels with all kinds of profiles that I took in trade and they have been sitting for about 8 years collecting dust. I am getting excited about this new skill I about to learn and would even like to take some classes to get up to speed faster learning the basics. Does anyone have any suggestions about books or techniques I can investigate?
He calls his collection “Sea Grass” and they sell got around $300.00 if I remember correctly.
