Start where you are.

Came across the following quote by Arthur Ashe (tennis player):

Start where you are.  Use what you have.  Do what you can.

I think that's a great way to approach carving.  The world is full of the next great tool you absolutely have to have in order to be a better carver.  Lets face it, many of us have the tool collecting bug anyway.  That doesn't mean you can't start right now-  If all you have is a knife, get some wood and go for it.  if all you have is $20, get a knife and some wood and go for it.

Maybe you're a whittler and that's all you need.  If not, you can always get more, later.

Just go for it  (Don't tell Nike I said that)
