So I’ve been doing woodworking only for the last 2 years and have advanced my skills enough that I plan to tackle a few more challenging jobs this spring/summer but I’m also preparing for next winter and the rest of this one. My shop (3/4 of a 2 car garage and all of it in the summer) is not heated and I just accepted a new job so we’ll be moving in a year or two if I like this job so no upgrades (heat) for my garage anymore.
Now to kill time in the winter when its freezing ass cold and so I can still do wood working I want to try wood carving I love the stuff Josh Carte does the faces are awesome and I want to learn to do those as I can already think of numerous designs I could incorporate them into. Now my question is what tools would I need to begin carving or are all around needed for carving I am currently reading a few books and any information or videos on hand carving pointers or help would be appreciated.
