The folks I am making the table for have two boys around the ages of 7-9 yrs. Their mom told me they are constantly swiping her paring and small steak knives to carve wood they find on their property. They are both inquisitive and artistic and are fascinated with my work. So with parental permission I am making this carving kit. Two beginner knives I got at the Greenville, SC. show, along with silica carbide powder for stropping, and Vetwrap tape for their thumbs. I made the strop, and the compartment below it will be filled with fabric bandages. I I also cut 14 pieces of wood for carving blanks from 3 species, basswood, paulownia, and butternut.
