EDC – The Wood Carver
Wood carving and whittling has been part of us since the origins of our species, this is in fact one of the crucial reasons why we stand where we do today. In this shot we see some of the main tools that a wood carver would own.
The most popular styles of wood carving tools are: straight chisel, with a straight flat edge; straight gouge, with a curved cutting edge which will range in depth; short bent, with a small spoon-like dip used for quick deep cuts; long bent, which will make a long deep cut; straight skew, with a diagonal cutting edge; parting tool or veiner, which is a furrowing tool with a cutting edge that looks like a “v”; and fishtail which flares out on the left and right tips like the tail of a fish.
In addition to the individual wood carving tools, some other carving implements include: a mallet for striking an individual tool; sharpening stones for honing the tool blades when dull; handheld tools for chip carving or relief work; and carving knives for finishing and detailing work as well as chip carving or whittling.
You might as well find other most invasive tools such as saws or most particularly draws knives and planes.
