I am very new to woodworking but find myself hooked. I have been woodcarving for 3 months, I am still trying to slowly accumulate tools and am mainly working within a free to use shop within my campus. So far I have carved out a few spoons/knives from construction wood scraps and made a kuksa from some small wood blanks I bought.

Pretty much, I am going to be lurking on this site for some tips and of course tools/wood.
Really excited to see what things I can learn

Thanks for all the welcomes!
As for pictures, I can show what I am currently working on since my other projects at the shop.

The kuksa I am trying to get the inside of the bowl more smooth + will be adding a bit more detail to the cup. It is made of maple + purpleheart.

And the spoon I will be carving into a snake, just deciding on what kind of snake I would like. It is made from a nectarine tree branch.

Currently, switch between using hand tools and a dremel, but don't use the dremel often since most of the bits need to be replaced due to them also being used for metal by others who use the shop.
