Default Rookie carver's first carving class.

First off, thanks for all the responses to my original post. I
appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge.

Today I attended my fist carving class at American Woodcarving in
Wayne, NJ. Class of 9 people all at much higher skill levels than me.
Received some 1 on 1 attention from the instructor including basic
knife sharpening and various cutting techniques. As the new guy, my
time was spent working on a rough cut basswood form of a whale, not
life size of course. I completed about half of the carving and hope to
finish up next week. In addition, I'll be receiving more detailed
sharpening instructions for the most commonly used carving tools. I'm
off to a good start.
