The first tool to familiarize yourself with is the magic "search" tool at the upper right-hand side of the screen. New carvers jump on here and ask that question often, and it, and many other questions have been answered often. Use the "search" and you should find answers to a lot of your questions which have been asked a number of times before.

Welcome to TC and good luck with your carving.
