Mary I am having some problems finding #1 10mm, #1 18mm, #3 18mm, and #5 8mm... I did buy all the carving sets from chipping away. Can you point me where I can get these? Thank you

Excellent lesson on how to make adjustments. Faces have always been a challenge for me. This lesson
Is the first step in formulating a strategy towards success.
I have a 18" x 18" plywood board with walls going up on two sides (forming a corner) and the bottom is covered with a rubber shelf liner. This shelf liner keeps the above from sliding on a table or workbench. I do not secure my workpiece but push it into the corner formed by the walls of the worksurface. I can freely rotate the work-piece and push it back into the corner. I make all the cuts toward the walls.
I have seen that used quite often. The difficulty I have always found is that if you are used to having the wood clamped tightly in bench dogs (and therefore can carve in any direction without it moving), it takes a little getting used to where you can only carve in the direction of the "border" of this holder, or it will slip out. If that's all you use, then you simply only carve in those directions. If you go back and forth between clamping it solidly, and then using this, it can be quite disconcerting when the wood shifts from under you when you are not expecting it. This is a great way to hold carvings if you do not have bench dogs, and just want to brace it to any surface - like if you are camping and want to carve on a picnic table 🙂
Great and informative commentary.
