Corey, I see you would like a little help with the chip carving thing. I would suggest two books that are very good for the beginner, Complete Guide to Chip Carving by Wayne Barton and Chip Carver’s Workbook by Dennis Moor both are good books. You should only need one chip carving knife, pencil, ruler, and a bow compass

Hardwood can be chip carved but it takes a little bit longer and I use gouges and chisels to get the chips close and then finish them off with the knife to get the smooth chips.

If you have any other questions I might be able to help. Good Luck!
