    Ken there is no doubt in my mind that you can handle woodcarving.

    I also think I would struggle with carving I think being able to carve and draw go hand in hand , and I can not draw.Also there is no way the gouges (Cheap) I bought will cut like the guys in the video and I wonder what difference the wood used makes. Perhaps attending a carving course were all tools and materials are provided would at least get me off on the right foot

    This is a nice video, Thanks Ken!

    I’ve recently become interested in carving. Although I’ve been following Peter Follansbee for a couple of years now, I’ve not been interested until recently.

    David Gill, I bought both of his DVDs on the subject and he addresses the wood. He says the Riven is best, followed by quarter sawn then flat sawn. But they’ll work. As far as species, he favors Oak (of course).

    I would think even your “cheap gouges” should work fine. Just sharpen them before starting … and then probably pretty frequently during the process. ๐Ÿ™‚
