I was gifted this beautiful wood carving tool set on Friday which includes a 15 different tools including a bench and detail knife. Along with this set, I'm now in possession of 4 different shaped blocks of basswood to get started. I'm a novice when it comes to whittling, so I hesitate to call this a hobby. My goal is to focus on a Halloween piece, which gives me six months to get a piece done. Enough time? I sure hope so.
