So I want to try my hand at carving. I’m going to do a crushed turquoise stone inlay in my wife’s initials on top of a box (or something).
Here is about what I want to carve I’m thinking somewhere around 2”x2”:
What 2-3 basic carving tools would I need? I’m probably going to be carving this into wenge or walnut so they can’t be too flimsy.
I was looking at these (a bit more than I was planing on spending… but if I can get away with only getting 2…)
What’s a decent beginner set to play with and carve into hardwood. Because I’m doing stone inlay I basically just need to cut the outline and then remove the wood to a depth of 1/8” or so I’m guessing. Any tips?
I really have no idea what I need… something to cut an outline and something to remove the center?
