Chris Pye has almost everything you need to know about woodcarving on his website. He is an amazing carver and shares a lot of what he knows. I’ve been getting his email newsletter for a long time now. He doesn’t do them monthly, just whenever he gets around to it I guess but they are fairly well written with good content.

When you get there, do a site search for gouges and you will see a lot of different jigs.

There was an article in the new FWW mag on sharpening a carving gouge with a fair amount of detail covering grinding, sharpening and burnishing.

If you have a lathe, you can use a sharpening disk. I have information on it on my web site.

The advantage of power sharpening is that it’s faster, so you can spend more time carving.

I also have some carving tutorials here.
