I’m just getting started with carving so have no advice per se.
Have found a few resources:
New Carver Resources ::
and, lumberjocks.com has some very talented chip carvers.

I was into stained glass before the turning bug bit me after decades of being dormant. Little over a year ago, I was introduced to spoon carving...and am enjoying that along with turning.

When not turning or running T. Shadow & Co. I enjoy Magic, shooting, and camping.

My other hobbies are collecting coins, collecting vintage watches, singer/songwriter, golfing and riding my Harleys! I need cut down but I can never pick any to stop. Lol

Do not do chip carving of any kind. I do woodworking and mainly scrollsaw work so if there is anything I can help with which probably is not, be willing to share.

Pen turning & metal detecting for old coins keeps me busy...

I also have been doing chip carving for several years and when I started I found the following to be a excellent resource.


Marty is a great teacher and he has many videos and materials available

I have two hobbies:
1. Woodworking I try to make number 1
2. My honey-do list which usually overtakes my wood working.
