Yesterday my wife was asking about carving. I told her I had a beginner set of carving tools and that she could play around a little. Well, she talked me into going into the basement (shop, get your minds out of the gutter) to show her the tools. She played around a with a piece of cherry and seemed to be interested even more. I told her that basswood would be easier to carve if she really wanted to try something. Shortly after that we were off to Woodcract to pick up a book and a chunk of basswood.
So now I'm getting mixed feelings on this whole deal. What happens if she really likes this?? She will surely figure out how much I've been spending on my shop tools once she starts to want more. On the other hand she may be more willing to let me spend $$ on tools knowing that they will benefit her too. Im sooo confused.
