The main thrust of this blog is beginners and beyond. Well, that's about all whittlers and wood carvers. We've all heard the phrase "A picture is worth a thousand words". Does this mean that when describing the step-by-step carving process, it becomes more clear if the steps are supported by photos? There are several ways one may approach this. One may write out the step-by-step carving process, and leave it up to the reader to follow these steps. But if you think about it, there are an awful lot of separate steps to carving just about anything. Or one may support each of these written steps with a photo. Then of course time and space may require one to combine steps and support the combination of steps with a representative photo.
Any comments on this?
The question becomes; how many steps can be combined and supported by one photo, and still be easily followed by a beginner or a newer carver?
