    CJ, that is truly an art within itself. It is by far more rewarding to create something using hand tools as the true woodcraftsmen did years ago. Check out http://www.leevalley.com/home.aspx?c= They will send you a free catalog and they have just about any hand tool out there and their prices aren't too bad either.

    Dear Brother Jackson;
    Charles, if you need wood carving tools I suggest the Ashley Iles brand available at http://www.toolsforwoodworking.com. There is also the Henry Taylor brand available from a dealer, I believe it's in Houston.
    If you need any more help for Hand Carving tools send me a PM with your needs and I will do what I can to help you out. :smile2:
    Fraternally,
