Butternut is an easy to carve wood with a beautiful colour and grain when finished with wax or oil. The instructor will have a small supply of tools that can be tried but you will need you own basic tools to complete the carving.
The instructor will also have a selection of finishing products that you can use to put the final finish on your carving.
We will be carving a comfort bird. They're designed to fit in the palm of your hand, so you can rub them for comfort. They also provide a simple easy to carve introduction into wood carving. Here is a link to an article about them:
