Woodturning, Scrolling, and Carving
Learn more about the specialty branches of woodworking: woodturning, scrollsawing, and carving. We talk lathes and turning tools; scrollsaws, blades, and patterns; and carving knives, gouges, and chisels.
Let your lathe skills blossom by trying involuted or “inside-out” turning.
Whether you're new to the scrollsaw or just need a refresher course, WOOD magazine's Craig Ruegsegge

Can you provide me with a “get-started” list of carving tools?
Let's start with the basics.
