    Question wood sculpture/carving ?

    For Christmas, I am thinking of asking for wood carving tools as its something that has interested me and been on my mind for a while. Does anybody here have experience or knowledge in this domain of art? Tips/tricks/knowledge to share?

    IF I do take this up, I know I have to start small and simple, but my long term goals would be to carve a chess set, horse head book ends, a nativity set, toy animals for future nephews and nieces (if they ever come ).

    Do you have a vise, or some way to hold the wood still while you chisel or carve on it? Otherwise, you'll be in the ER getting stitches, what do you want to bet?

    I love carving and asked for a set of chisels for a Chrsitmas gift years ago. If you carve with chisels, like I said, you need a way to hold the wood still.

    It is a very satisfying feeling to carve/whittle or chisel wood!

    Not to my knowledge. Is this something I can buy at a hardware store? Would you be ale to post a picture of what it looks like? I do have gloves that are made for cutting though. My dad got them because he recently almost sliced his finger off while cutting wood with the table saw.

    I intend to get chisels, but I'd also like to get a carving knife so I can hold the wood in my hand and carve away to get some objects that are more rugged looking.

    Thanks for answering by the way Tiny! Your posts are always helpful and much appreciated. :)
