I started learning wood carving. I have found that ther is not many websites that shows how to carve. So I did it….my way.

In chapter 3: Learning Method, there is an initiation to wood carving with 16 studies. If you follow all these steps, you shoud start with a good idea of carving difficulties.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate.
