I'm going to take advantage of Woodcrafts sale of Pfeil carving tools. Rather than buying a prearranged set, I wanted to buy individual tools that would be needed for the type of carving I am interested in doing right now. I'll add on later as I need to.
My immediate desire is to ornament my woodworking with decorative carvings on draw fronts, legs, box tops, and door panels. I think I will leave the ball and claw foot for later, but I would like to get myself going on leaves, fruit, flowers, and lettering.
Here is what I was thinking of getting:
#3 in 6mm & 12mm
#5 in 6mm & 12mm
#7 in 6mm & 12mm
60 Degree V-tool in 10mm
Veiner in 3mm
Skew fishtail in 12mm
Thoughts on this combo? I am hoping that these 9 tools would give me enough flexability to get myself started.
Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciatted.
