About Wood Carving Tools
image by DigitalHowie at Flickr
Wood carving or wood chipping has become a popular craft. Usually a very soft wood is used. Sugar pine and basswood are common wood choices. This is a hobby for older children or adults. The tools are very sharp and occasionally the carver will cut himself. It does not have to be an expensive craft to get into. The basic beginner set of tools and accessories can be purchased for little more than $50. These same tools can be used indefinitely, without purchasing additional ones.
