    Always cut AWAY and not towards yourself, much less likely to cut yourself that way.

    Also, I should add, don't be stupid when you have sharp stuff in your hand. A lot of people seem to skip this step

    Nice, i been carving wood for a while and a tip is to start with pink foam insulation. Doing that will gill you something to look at while carving the wood.
