Was thinking of purchasing some tools for relief carving so I went through approx. 50 of Ivan Whitlock's carving projects and tabulated the tools he used. Here's what I got.

34 Projects

Sweeps Used: 17

Tools Used: 65

Most Used Sweeps (10 or more times):

1 - 10 times

3 - 66 times

5 - 37 times

7 - 36 times

9 - 20 times

11 - 39 times

41 - 30 times Most uses tools (10 or more times):

3 - 6mm 21 times

3 - 12 mm 16 times

3 - 16 mm 17 times

5 - 12 mm 14 times

7 - 12 mm 12 times

11 - 3 mm 21 times

41 - 12 mm 21 times

Used 5 to 9 times:

3 - 14 mm 5 times

5 - 20 mm 8 times

5 - 25 mm 6 times

7 - 20 mm 5 times

7 - 25 mm 5 times

9 - 20 mm 7 times

11 - 6 mm 5 times

Still confused, but approaching sanity anyway.
