I want to take up the hobby of wood carving/whittling . I watched a few videos but theres none that start from very basic instructions. I would like to make things from branches of different sizes frim the woods . I can identify pine n ithers so know which is hard or soft wood .
What i am asking is for helpful tips on carving that can help me build my skills and confidence to do bigger and bigger projects . Let it be noted i want to do this all with basic handtools.
