Wood is an extremely versatile and rewarding medium to work with. Once learned, skills obtained from wood carving and woodwork are also easily transferable to other materials, such as stone, clay, wax, metal, and plastics. Crucial to obtaining your desired results in your work, however, is the right set of tools; here at Alec Tiranti, we specialise in the provision of high quality and durable woodcarving tools.
Be you a beginner or artistic professional, the right set of tools is the first step to crafting a beautiful piece of woodwork. Our sets of tools contain the core essential wood carving chisels and knives, with a variety of nib points that allows you to create differently shaped marking of varying depth. Depending on your preferred working style, these tools come with different handles – the mushroom handled tools, for instance, or the general handheld woodcarving tools.
Our stock of wood carving mallets and wood carving chisels also varies dependent on the way in which you intend to work with the wood. Our chip knives, for instance, are an essential for chip and spoon carving, in cabinetry and general woodworking. The shape of the blade will be determined by the method of cutting you aim to use it for.
Besides the tools themselves, at Alec Tiranti we also stock equipment to ensure you achieve the optimum results from your tools. Our sharpening equipment, for example, will keep your wood markings sharp and precise, in the pattern and shape you intended. Here you will find a range of products, such as slipstones and honing oil.
