Beginner's Carving Tool Set Review

I'm to find new things for my kids to try out. It's so important to me to have them be exposed to now things often. Recently I was sent a Beginner's Carving Tool Set to review. 

It's a 12 piece set. Each tool has a different tip:

  • Deep Gouge
  • Medium Gouge
  • Shallow Gouge
  • Narrow Straight Chisel
  • Wide Straight Chisel
  • Rounded Chisel
  • 4 Angled Knives /Chisels
  • Parting Tool
  • Pinpoint Tool
Here are photos of each and every tool in the kit:

These do seem great. I haven't carved in years. Mica started out trying to push down too much. It was like he was trying to use the tools like they were drill bits. I showed him how to carve, and to always carve away from yourself.

He figured it out. He didn't stick with it as much as I wanted him to. At least he knows how. I want to get Isaak to try. He's almost 8, but still will need supervision. He's more of my art lover though. Mica can be good at art, but he looses interest really fast.

I like that this set comes with the tips fixated to the handle. I really don't like the idea of my kids thinking that they can change tips, and possibly cut themselves.

This is perfect for beginners, someone that wants to take it up as a hobby, or if you have a certain project in mind that this can be used on. It's not really for professionals that carve all the time. You can use them for carving projects with stencils and patterns, touching up antique furniture, any miniature or micro models, spoons, bowls, box or animals, such as eagles, fish, bears or even elephants.

This set comes with the free ebook to get you started:


Works on linoleum, clay sculpture and soapstone too. You can even cut a potato 1/2 way, and carve into that.

Use as a set or as accessories to your tool chest.

Have you ever done a wood carving before?

Show us a finished project from one of yall. I would love to learn how to do it, but don't have the patience to try.

Wood carving is such a neat talent. Something I will never be good at, but I do love looking at others works.
