Carving Tools Suppliers

Hi all - thought I'd post this bit of advice for any Kiwis (and or Aussies) who are beginners to wood or bone carving and do not have the technical expertise or wherewithal to make their own Gravers.

I found a 12 piece set for $10 in my local Bunnings store today - haven't had a chance to try them out yet, but they appear to be just what I was looking for.

I found them amongst the chisels. Checked out the local art supply stores as well to no avail, which doesn't mean that the larger centres won't have anything. Think Lino cutting etc.

Will post photos later when I have time.

Hi all, I thought I'd tell you about my mini rasp set. They were ~ $8.00 u.s. for the set; no handles. They came in a blue plastic pouch (I think 8 of them).

I got at Woodcrafters of Portland, OR maybe other locations too. I think they are German made and they work a treat for HARD wood, ivory, soapstone and pipestone roughing.

They are 4" of teeth 3/8" wide by 1/16" thick( minus the teeth )on the flat one.

Try these, you'll enjoy roughing out,

Jesse
