Alaska Creative Woodworkers association
a club for carvers, scrollers, and woodworkers
Interested in Carving? Getting started recommendations
Consider going to the carving club meetings.
We have some great carvers coming to club which are ready and willing to help beginners or any carver that might have questions.
It's great to be in a club because you always have support.
You welcome to attend club meetings (membership is not required).
Before purchasing any tools, come to a club meeting. There are tools that first time carvers can try to see what you like.
Never buy tools without putting them into your hand first to see if you like the feel of them.
Start with a basic set of wood carving gouges and a knife or a few.
I do have some flexcut tools for sale including Lyons and Dunkle knives or know where you can get other tools that are for sale. A couple of people have some used tools for sale too.
I also have some basswood which is the wood we like to use for carving.
Any other questions you can contact me and I will do my best to help you out.
Come to Artistry in Wood and visit with us.
