You want to know what equipment to obtain? All right then! As I mentioned last month, a lot depends on how “tooled-up” you want to be – it’s really not about the amount of equipment you have but what you produce from it.
What I have is:
An admission: I really should have a guard for the belt (safety!) but never got around to adding it. But since I’m the only person using the equipment I guess it’s fine.
There you are – that’s one way of doing it!
As I say, whichever way you decide to go is equally good – it is entirely up to you. You will be measured by the quality of your work, not the cost of your equipment.
On this page I intend to add monthly updates on aspects of jade carving. I also plan to invite more experienced carvers to offer a "master-class" on a particular subject of their choice. With this I hope to enthuse both the novice and the expert in this ancient and beautiful art-form/craft. And comments are welcome!
