Welcome to the world of carving.

First, I would check locally for any clubs. My club offers a class once a year for beginners, the class offers a wide range of carving.

Second, what type of carving do you think you would interested in? One word of advance with this topic, try all the different carving styles. I stayed away from chip carving for about two years because I just thought I wouldn’t like it. Five years later, I’m teaching the beginners class of chip carving at my club.

Third, I don’t know your location but look for woodcarving shows. I live in the mid-west and travel to Dayton, Ohio each year for the Artistry in Wood show. Poeple that set up there are more than happy to talk carving.

Hope this helps. Happy carving.

Remember, a dull knife is worse than the sharpest knife.
