Aww, thanks everybody!

what sort of tool do you use for carving?

I used a variety of tools for this project, mostly woodcarving knives (the two I own are both Flexcut brand, the Cutting Knife and the Detail knife; I also used several of my dad's carving knives that have smaller blades than mine do, at least one of which my dad made himself) and V-shaped carving gouges (pfeil brand palm tools are good).  If you're interested in taking up woodcarving, I recommend getting a knife that's made for carving rather than trying to use a pocketknife or craft knife.  Carving knives have short blades in proportion to the handle so you have a lot of control over where the blade goes, and they're generally sharp on the straight edge rather than on the curved edge.  Also the point of a carving knife won't break off as easily as the tip of an X-Acto blade.
