Wood Carving

Posted by itielady (My Page) on

Are there any people who carve wood? I'm trying to relearn and can use some advice on where to buy some Bass Wood. I live in CA in the country, so going to my local lumber yard for fancy carving woods is a no go. Not talking about "planking" just some small blocks of wood at a fair price as I would have to pay shipping.

I think there are. I go to a woodcarving show every couple of years and there are always vendors there selling knives and blocks. I just don't remember who they are.
