Default Mom of Crafty Kid thanks you

A belated introduction as I have been reading the wonderful information on this site for months now. It all started when my daughter and I spotted Floyd Rhadigan's horse on the cover of Woodcarving Illustrated. As a horse enthusiast and arts and crafts enthusiast, my daughter was intrigued and promptly settled on wood carving tools as her upcoming birthday wish. Then I got to work on the research, and thanks to all of your helpful advise my daughter (14) is off to a good start. She has a beautiful set of Drake knives, strop and compound, safety glove, apron, tape, finger guards, Floyd's roughout of the horse, Heinecke wood (ordered after watching her struggle with some craft store basswood!), and of course a subscription to Woodcarving Illustrated. We live in Southern California and I have been in contact with our local club in hopes of finding some instruction for my daughter. On that note, I also have to thank Gene and Arleen, as my daughter is getting her start by following your youtube tutorials. This is my first post, but I have learned so much from reading the information shared on this website, and I thank you all for sharing your advise, we have a new carving enthusiast because of it.

Hello Crafty Kid and mom, welcome to the forum. It's always good to hear about another generation taking up the craft/hobby/art of woodcarving. It sounds like you've got a good start with. You can't go wrong with Drake knives, Gil makes a very high quality tool. I look forward to seeing Crafty Kid carvings in the near future.

Your daughter is off to a good start because she has a terrific mom, who supports her artistic urges..... she is a lucky girl. I can't wait to see what she does, be sure to post some pics on the forum so we can see....

Oh, and mom, you should give it a shot too. My mom didn't start carving until she was 40, ditto for me. It's never too late.
