Recently had to have one of my dogs put to sleep, had her for 11 great yrs., had her cremated and I’ve wanted to learn how to do carving. I wanted to use one of my pictures to carve something to put her ashes in, however I don’t own any carving tools and I don’t have any experience. So I’m looking for suggestions for both tools and possibly how-to books/videos. I know it’s something you just don’t pick up over night, but I need to get started somehow.

Here is an old book that’s online.
woodchoppin has a 4 part series
some Underhill stuff part1 part 2
a very good blog to read
I have a 4 piece 2cherrys carving set and its not enough. Look at flexcut. The 2 cherrys is made wonderfully and holds an excellent edge.
go on ebay shop for stuff made in the 19’th century.

Here is a link to one of Chris Pye’s newsletters. It says right on it to feel free to share it. If you look towards the bottom, there are links to carving lessons.

Here is the link to his newsletter archive. Lots of great information.
