My wife would like to get started in carving some shallow bowls. I’m more of a”straight board” woodworker, so I dont really know too much about this type of thing. It looks like she can get away without an adze or scorp based on the size and geometry of pieces she wants to work on. This means that bent gouges are going to be doing most of the heavy lifting. For the outside it looks like it’ll be drawknife, flat chisels, scrapers, etc. maybe some rasps and files and sandpaper.
Anyone have any advice to offer on a good starter selection of tools? Ideally I’d like something about the quality and price of Narex bench chisels. So far the only ones I can find are the Henry Taylors offered by Lee Valley.
while i’m at it, any other tools I’m missing that would be good to have to start out with?
