Collection: Carving Timber Blanks

Carving timber is a skilled craft that involves shaping wood by cutting, chiseling, and sculpting to create intricate designs, patterns, or three-dimensional forms.

The first step in timber carving is selecting the right type of wood. Different woods have varying textures, densities, and grain patterns, which can affect the ease of carving and the final appearance of the piece. Common choices include softwoods like Jelutong or Huon Pine for beginners, while experienced carvers might work with hardwoods such as oak, cherry, or walnut for their durability and fine grain.
