Basic Carving Tools

As a beginning carver, the choice of carving tools available can be overwhelming. Which tools you really need to learn this craft and which tools you really will use can be a hard decision. There are several basic tool shapes that are standard to this hobby.  Take a quick look at the different tool profiles available for your use.

Carving Tools Close-Up

Here is a quick visual close-up of some of my favorite carving tools. This grouping will eventually find their way onto the work table during any carving project. The vast majority of the tools show here are between 25 and 40 years old since most are inherited from my father’s many years of wood carving. Your investment in good quality tools will last beyond your life time.

I love fill patterns, textures, and random designs as my shading strokes in pyrography.  While you can, of course, use your shading tip, small repetitive patterns worked with your loop-tip or ball-tip burning pen fill an area easily, add interest, and can add tonal shading by working in layers of burning.

Today’s free doodle patterns show six quick and simple fill patterns.  How many burn lines and how packed those burn lines are worked into one area will determine how pale or dark your shading becomes.

Today is a “nose to the grindstone – shoulder to the wheel” day of work on the upcoming books from Fox Chapel Publishing.  So I am off to work and will post something more substantial tomorrow.

In the mean time I highly recommend Fox Chapel’s Wood Carving Illustrated forum.
