Good luck! Get yourself a set of plain old Stanley flat chisels to get started with...at any hardware store and about 12.00 for 3. Then as you learn what the basic stuff can do you will know better what different shapes accomplish as well.

heh, i already have a set of chisels. i bought them with a plan for that cherry plank i offered you. they're from harbour freight. when i can, i'll get a good set. need to stop buying mugs first. i did pick up a good draw knife and a pretty decent 1 1/2" chisel.

little update. he's naked now. my ass hurts from sitting on a log. any ideas or crits are more than welcome.

P, I use a 4.5" angle grinder with some gravel like discs one disc is 24 grit don't push to hard into the wood till you get used to it, it will bite you or the wood. Grinders are cheap, may want to start with 60,100 or 120 grit discs till you feel comfortable (WARNING) I take the sheild off, this is bad advice but it gives me better clearence.
Hope this helps.
Good luck,

Pdrake, looks good. Smoothing the cuts?, Make them into V cuts with a sharp bottom and there is nothing to smooth out. Keep up the good work.

thanks so much for the feedback. i'm afraid i'm going too deep, or not deep enough. there's no one here in vegas to give me any direction, only some guy stealing jungle trader's pics.

i want to be original and have my stuff appreciated locally. it's been a struggle doing this all by myself.
