Here are some other reasons to join a wood carving club:
Learn from others: 
You can learn from watching and talking to other wood carvers.

Introduce you to new tools and skills:
Wood Carving Work allows you to introduce new tools and skills as you feel confident.

Make money:
Wood carving can be a very profitable career. You could start your own business, selling custom-made pieces, or become an instructor and teach others how to carve.

Wood carving has a fairly steep learning curve.

Some of the things you need to learn include:
Holding the tools correctly
Learn to sharpen your tools properly
C
utting at the correct angle
Judging how much wood to remove with each cut
Choosing the best tool for each cut

Wood carving is not an expensive hobby. You can start for free with tools you already have. You can buy all the high-quality beginner tools you'll need for less than the cost of a single video game.
