Last year my son was throwing out his old pine bunk bed and asked me if I wanted the wood to burn on our wood burner.  I kept a few pieces to practice carving love spoons.  I really like the grain in pine but it isn't an easy wood to carve.  It is a bit splitty,

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

Thank you. The hole wasn't difficult to carve.  A lot of carvers cut out the basic shape with a band saw or scroll saw.  I carve the entire thing using chisels but must admit that when I replace the blade on my scroll saw I will start cutting out the basic shape with it.  It will save many hours

I've picked up a few bits of special wood a couple of weeks ago, with the intentions of starting to carve some spoons, have you any beginners tips, websites, resources etc that you could recommend?
