Best carving websites

John

Are you looking for some other carving websites to occupy your time when you’re not reading this website? As much as I don’t want to turn away my readers, here are some of my favourite websites. Besides jackpots online which is my absolute favourite – of course!

  1. HONGKIAT has a great page which I love to peruse on my iPad when I’m babysitting the kids. This page has 55 Amazing Wooden Sculptures to check out. Click here for more.
  2. Jeffro Uitto’s work is also wonderful. You can find out more about his work from his website, here.
  3. Next, head on over to the Mike Rea page. You certainly won’t be disappointed with his work. I spend a lot of time checking out all of the new things on his website. It’s a great place for inspiration. I recommend heading over to this website as soon as possible. Check it out here.
  4. Gallery 78 is another choice which you should certainly be checking out. This website has a huge array of options. Head over to the gallery now by using this link.
  5. I’ve mentioned Bruno Walpoth in a previous post on this site. However, you should visit this page so you can find out more about the genius.
  6. Do you like NYC? Maura is a wood carver in NYC – check out her website and peruse the many different delights on her site. She also has some very informative information which any newbies, or even professionals, may really enjoy reading!

Do you have any great websites for me to check out? These are just a few options which Google, and friends, let me know about. However, I’m sure my readers have a lot more suggestions which I can certainly be checking out and enjoying while the kids and dog run around, driving me crazy. Until next time!

Review of greatest carving tools

John

If you are looking for the best carving tools, all you need to do is head on over to Amazon and you’ll find a long list of some of the best options.

However, there is a fantastic option of a twelve set of Gimars. These are SK5 Carbon steel wax and wood tools. They are perfect for wood carvings. However, they are definitely for beginners. Which is why I am recommending them on my site! If you are just starting out, then make sure you get a kit which is simple to use and easy to understand! You can also show your kids these tools, as I have also done! Just make sure there is always a responsible adult about (not me then!)

This kit isn’t expensive and is definitely worth checking out, here. Let me know if you have any favourite tools as I am currently working with a few options passed down from my grandfather to work on my current projects. However, as I am trying to teach my kids the trade, I need to find more options which can suit our family needs!

Something I love about this tool kit is the money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with the tools. There is a large range of tips to choose from so you can get the exact look you need but also refined wooden handles, so you don’t have to hurt your hand while using them!
This toolset is for SOFT wood – so keep this in mind. It is very much for beginners or children. Choose from basswood or pine. Certainly do not use cherry or hardwoods such as oak. However, this is a great way to learn. So simply start using these tools and then move onto harder woods once you’ve perfected the basics.

The little carving tools look and feel great so I recommend you give them a try! With this part of my site, I hope to be reviewing some of the greatest carving tools around. However, this first choice is not a cheap option, although the price tag may be low, they certainly don’t feel like cheap, plastic options to use! They’re a fantastic array of options, so send off for them while they’re in the sale!
