I stumbled across chip carving a few weeks ago and I can’t wait to get started. I am waiting on my Knives now and I have started looking for wood, which brings me here.
I know the best wood for chip carving is Basswood but it is not available in my area (Newfoundland, Canada) and having it shipped here seems expensive.
I was wondering if someone could suggest some other types of wood that would work well for chip carving and may be easily accessible in my area, or any suggestions/tips on getting wood shipped for a reasonable price.
I don’t know if more information is required but if so feel free to ask. Also I am new here so if I am asking in the wrong place I apologize.
