So, you have decided that you want to become a woodcarver and you are asking,
"What do I do now?"  Well, you will need carving tools, wood, imagination,
and time to devote to carving.  

For starters, we suggest that you take a carving class or find an 
experienced carver with which to carve. In the meanwhile, we have put
together some hints, suggestions, definitions, and instructions to help
you get started.  Read on!
