Whittlin or (Maybe Carving) Cheap
People always ask the question, "Whats it cost to get into "carving". Well my answer is anywhere from $2.00 to $200, and up. First, you can do what I do. Hang around the bandsaw at a carving roundup and pocket the leftover trimmings. This is a piece of Butternut that was one of many I picked up at the bandsaw. The ol' Barlow pocket knife was purchased at a flea market for $2.00. Course I kinda reshaped the smaller blade and put a good edge on it. It don't take a large investment to get started.
