Non non normal
I was given a carving knife and a how to carving book for a gift. Any wood carvers in the house? I am clueless.
What wood do you use? Basswood? White Pine?I am a sometimes carver
1. Sharp blade
2. Cut away from you
3. Except when it makes sense.
4. It never makes sense to cut towards you
Do you have a vise or something to hold the wood?
Do you have a sharpening stone?
Do you have appropriate wood?
I would trade a piece of wood for a small jug of honey.
